Biology / Life Sciences

Biology is a compulsory subject from grades 5 to 9. During these years the foundation of knowledge required to understand basic concepts is laid.

In the FET phase (grades 10 – 12) Life Sciences is an optional subject.


There are four broad themes that are worked through each year from Grades 10 to 12.

·         Life at Molecular, cellular and tissue level

·         Life Processes

·         Environmental Studies

·         Biodiversity, Change and continuity of life


Life Sciences offer learners the opportunity to explore and have hands-on learning by conducting and recording investigations and experiments. Their scientific enquiry, problem solving and critical thinking skills are enhanced.

Experienced teachers from Germany and SA offer exciting lessons in our modern labs.
