Did you know: Our brains form a million new connections every second of our lives and yet the brain uses less power than your refrigerator light – just 12 watts.

“Biology is truly a land of unlimited possibilities. We may expect it to give us the most surprising information and we cannot guess what answers it will return in a few dozen years….. They may be of a kind which will blow away the whole of our artificial structure or hypothesis.” Sigmund Freud

Biology is an exciting and ever developing area of the curriculum. During your biological studies at DHSB you will experience a robust and well-structured course. Online and physical resources will support you. Biology will include practical work to enhance your learning. Our expectation is that students will support their classroom learning with independent study and take advantage of the opportunities provided to further their Biological knowledge.

“Biology is now the biggest part of science as measured by the size of the budgets, by the size of the workforce, or by the output of major discoveries; and Biology is likely to remain the biggest part of science through the twenty first century.” Freeman Dyson “Biology has progressed tremendously due to the model that Darwin put forth. But the black boxes Darwin accepted are now being opened and our view of the world is again being shaken” Michael Behe
