Based within the Sixth Form Department, Psychology offers students the opportunity to understand the complexities of the human mind. Psychology allows students to understand what is happening when people behave in a particular way and explain where it comes from. The department is made up of specialist teachers with a wide range of skills to equip students with the skills and abilities which can be applied to the examinations and everyday life.
The department prides itself on being well resourced, enabling students to learn through enquiry and discovery. There is a real sense of passion and determination within the staff department making Psychology a popular subject to study at A Level.
The structure of the course is a 2 year Linear A Level whereby all external examinations will be sat at the end of the year 13.
The course offers students an engaging and stimulating introduction to the study of psychology, combined with the academic integrity and skills that Higher Education and employers’ value.
