Manchester High School for Girls


Biology affects us all, from how our bodies work to understanding the role of all living organisms in the environment around us. Therefore, we consider it vital for every student at Manchester High to gain a solid biological background as well as enthusiasm for the subject.

The Biology department promotes excellent working relationships between teachers and students, and our staff provide intellectually stimulating and enjoyable lessons to all. Many of our students choose A-level Biology and go on to pursue Biology related degrees and careers.

Year 7 trip to Chester Zoo.

Our core Biology curriculum is enhanced by a range of extra-curricular activities and trips designed to inspire pupils and develop their scientific skills as they progress through the School. 

Students can choose from many lunchtime clubs such as CSI Club, STEM Club and CREST Award. There are also options of Dissection Club in the Sixth Form. Recently, we also introduced a Biology Newletter (BioVision) created by Sixth Formers for their peers.

In addition to these clubs, we also run a yearly trip to Chester Zoo with Year 7. In the past we have also taken a marine biology field trip to Turkey.

We also provide opportunities for students to enter national biology competitions organised by the Royal Society of Biology.  We have had considerable success in many of  these competitions in recent years.
