Psychology and Sociology are popular and successful subjects at GCSE and A level. The whole department is passionate about these subjects, both in terms of how they can benefit students academically and also in how both subjects can improve student’s understanding of people and groups. They give students the skills to interpret and analyse all information that is given to them in order for them to make more objective decisions and judgements.
Many of our past students have gone on to study psychology and/or sociology at top universities in the country, providing them with a huge and varied range of career opportunities.
