About the Course!

Environmental Science is the scientific study of how the environment supports us and our common way of life, and consequently, how we threaten these support systems. This subject will cover a range of topics including, sustainable living, environmental ethics and debates around wildlife and conservation. 

You will develop skills on how to gather and evaluate information as well as learning how best to work in a collaborative process with others. 

Take a look at the resources below put together by the Environmental Science Department and have a go at the accompanying activities, identifying bird activity and recording its frequency!

Student wellbeing and support 

At Andover College we understand that starting college in these uncertain times can be daunting and we aim to make this process as simple as possible. 

We have a dedicated team that provide our students with any additional support they need including; 

  • Counselling 
  • Carer support 
  • Childcare support 
  • Confidential one-to-one services 

We also have at the college Romeo our therapy dog! Romeo is part of the continued effort from Andover College to consistently improve on and add to wellbeing provision for students. Romeo is based on campus with his owner throughout term.

Research has shown that students are significantly less stressed and anxious, and even have increased happiness and energy, immediately following spending time in a drop-in session with a dog present.
