I'm hoping to apply to oxford next year for biology but, besides good grades, I have nothing to put in my personal statement. I've not really done much outside of school other than grade 5 piano. I want to do extra stuff that will demonstrate my passion and interest in biology. Any ideas would be really appreciated.

Admissions officers are only interested in things that are relevant to your course so things like piano are ok to mention but only briefly as they're not relevant. There's lots of reading you can do, attend lectures, watch videos and see if you can get some shadowing or work experience through a scheme for example or attend a summer school.
