Biology is the study of all living things, from the enormous blue whale down to the microorganisms that live on our skin. Biology is a subject students love because we are curious animals who want to know what life is and to learn how we can coexist with and use the living world around us.

Biology is offered at NCEA Level 2 and 3 in the senior school. The Biology pathway prepares students with the knowledge to understand our living world, how to conduct research in a biological context, and how to understand the complex work of scientists in the biological sciences. Students who complete these courses have the ability to head further into tertiary studies such as Biomedical Science, Neuroscience, Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacology, Ecology, Plant and Animal Research, and plenty more.
