Biology is the study of Life – the study of living things.

All students study Biology as part of their Junior Certificate Science subject. Students can choose to take Biology for Leaving Certificate to study the subject in greater detail.

Students may choose Biology as a subject of interest at Senior Cycle, particularly, those thinking of pursuing a career in Healthcare or Medicine. Many students have excelled in Biology and progressed on to study Medicine, Dentistry, Pharmacy, Nursing, Biomedical Science, Biochemistry, Environmental Studies and other courses in the Biological Science area. We aim to facilitate students in reaching their full potential.

Students who may be considering to choose Biology for Leaving Certificate have a great opportunity to get a taste of the subject in Transition Year. Biology is a core subject for all students. In addition, a Horticulture module has been developed in recent years which students participate in. This allows them to develop an interest and life skill in the area of organic gardening.
