biology learning resources


I am a biology tutor in Harrogate, North Yorkshire. I started this site as a collection of useful links for teachers and pupils.

Recommended links

You will notice some links appear in green.  These are recommended (by me!) as particularly useful or interesting.

Key Stage 3

This page contains some biology and other science sites for years 7 to 9.

IGCSE Biology

Links for IGCSE biology, in sections according to the Edexcel specification. However many of these will also be relevant to other courses.

IGCSE Chemistry

A smaller collection of links for this.

A level pages

For AS and A2 there is the main A level biology page. Ecology, Genetics, Nervous system and Microbes + disease have their own pages. I am currently updating links to reflect the new 2015 A level specification (AQA).  You will also find my links for potential Doctors and Vets here.

Eco Club

Sites that I used when running Eco Club, ideas for recycled crafts and games.


I have indicated whether sites are UK or US based, and whether they contain resources or just links.


sites relating to PSHE and citizenship – mostly key stage 3.

General Science sites

This page includes sites that don’t fit in anywhere else, including news, publications and fun.

Puzzles and Activities

Includes some science based and some not, fun activities either online or to print out.

Interactive quizzes

These were made using the Hot Potatoes program.


Some resources, notes, card sorts and revision sheets.
