Psychology

Psychology is only offered at KS5 and is a new subject for all Year 12 Psychology students.  However, the lessons and work is structured in such a way as to allow the students to quickly and competently feel understand and work to the expectation of the course.

We follow the AQA new specification, which is the new linear two year course.  It consists of 100% examination, spread across 3 exams which are taken at the end of Year 13.

Psychology is an incredibly popular subject at KS5 and so is offered across a number of classes, yet these are no bigger than 18.
