The study of living things and, therefore, yourself - what could be more interesting or more relevant?

Students embrace challenges, experiment with the unknown and, above all, enjoy a practical approach to the sciences. Small group work, student presentations, discussions, problem-solving exercises, as well as a residential field course, lead to increasing engagement, confidence and success.  Practical skills are integrated with theoretical topics and assessed through the written papers .  

Biology at A level is highly regarded and offers many  stimulating and diverse opportunities at university and in employment. 

Visitors to St Gabriel's quickly recognise that this is no ordinary school. Parents are always impressed by the sense of purpose and enthusiasm of the talented, committed staff and the confidence of the extremely happy pupils. We offer girls the opportunity for a seamless journey from Nursery through to Sixth Form, with our boys leaving us at the age of 11 for their senior schools.
