Our Social Science Department offers courses in both Sociology and Psychology at KS5. Both subjects remain a popular choice amongst students, with many choosing to continue with Social Science related degrees at University.
Studying a Social Science also allows students to develop transferable skills such as critical analysis, evaluation, independent thinking, mathematical skills and an understanding of scientific research. The Social Science department is lively and enthusiastic and is committed to trialling new teaching and learning activities to ensure that students receive high standards of teaching and learning in lessons. Both Psychology and Sociology courses are taught over two years with internal exams at the end of Year 12 and external exams at the end of Year 13.
