Psychology

Key Stage 5

Psychology is a popular subject which requires students to have strong powers of critical analysis, independent thinking and research. Students will learn how to analyse arguments and evidence, test hypotheses and make informed judgements.

In Year 1, in addition to gaining an understanding of the various Approaches in Psychology and Research Methods students will explore the Introductory Topics of Social Influence, Memory, Attachment, Biopsychology and Psychopathology.

Students will sit mock exams at the end of Year 12.

The final A Level is assessed by three external examinations:

1. Introductory Topics in Psychology
2. Psychology in Context
