    Both bind to one another? Personally, I would say "substrate binds to Active site". Sounds more natural.

    the substrate has a complimentary shape to the active site, which allows the substrate to bind to the active site

    They kinda bind to eachother. Kinda like poles on a magnet I suppose.

    The substrate binds to the active site would be the phrase to use in exams

    The active site binds the substrate would be just as acceptable I should have thought. *shrug*
