WHO WE ARE
The biology department is found on the ground floor as well as on the first floor in the Marie Curie Wing (4000) of the LML. We have 3 classrooms and 6 specialised practical rooms, an extensive selection of equipment and 13 highly motivated teachers with their specialisation in a broad range of domains.
At LML lessons are taught with a student-centered approach, and the methods used are as diverse as the students present in the various classes. An emphasis is put on the scientific approach in which students learn to hypothesis, plan, experiment, analyse and reflect. This approach is not only used in theory but it is also regularly put into practice using a variety of innovative methods and techniques. We encourage our students to become critical thinkers by creating, evaluating and analyzing their own experiments so they learn to apply their knowledge and to work like scientists.
WHAT WE OFFER
At KS3 students follow a natural science course (biology, chemistry and physics). Our aim is to transmit our enthusiasm for the natural sciences to our students. We encourage them to acquire an understanding of the environment and to give them insights into the complexity and curiosities of the world they live in, as well as their own bodies. At KS4 students follow a pure biology course in which they are encouraged to gain insights and a basic understanding of the living world. The course covers aspects of human and plant physiology, environmental biology and biotechnology. At KS5 students can choose biology as an A-Level. During this two-year course students will work on gaining a deeper and broader understanding of the complexity of this subject. Students investigate and analyse complex biological concepts both in theory as well as in practice. Achieving this A-Level in combination with other scientific subjects can open doors to pursue further biological studies at university level worldwide and various other scientific or health related subjects.
