Biology A Level at little canada for secondary schools

Course introduction

All three of our field studies centres are at coastal locations and also have easy access to rivers, allowing you to study aspects of marine, coastal and fluvial environments with ease.

Not only that, but our experienced team are well placed to run the biology course you need for your advanced level students. Our high 1:6 staff to student ratio enables us to provide better individual support as your students go about their investigations.

Tablet devices are available for your students to collect data, and they can use our IT facilities to analyse their results and prepare reports. They can also use online case studies and secondary evidence to make comparisons with their own findings.

We will always strive to ensure we meet your group’s learning needs – as directed by you. Before you arrive, we’ll design a programme that best meets your requirements, and we’ll be there to support you throughout your course.

And as a responsible provider, you can rely on us to take care of all aspects of the health and safety of your group during your stay – you’re in safe hands with us.
