They are introduced to basic ecology techniques working outside in different habitats on the LSF campus. GCSE work teaches them to evaluate topical issues such as stem cell research and the problems of pollution. Sixth Form students attend a residential field course in Yorkshire where they are introduced to an even wider range of habitats such as rocky shore and chalk land. The junior and senior pupils are encouraged to enter competitions organised by the Institute of Biology, such as the Biology Challenge, the Biology Olympiad and the East Midlands Biology Competition.
