Welcome to Sir Harry Smith and congratulations on your decision to join us in the Biology Department!

We hope that you have an enjoyable and successful time here.

Now that you’ve chosen to study biology in more depth, you may be feeling rather unsure about starting your Biology course. But don’t worry – the guide below has been designed to help you work through your course! A level and GCSE courses have recently changed, and some of these changes have made the GCSE course a better preparation for the AS one, making the move to AS easier and more logical. Consequently, you should already be familiar with most of the major topics and important terms covered by the AS biology course, for example, cell structures and the differences between plant and animal cells.  You may need to refresh your memory on some of these though!
