Psychology is the scientific study of mind and behaviour. If you are fascinated by people and the way the mind works this course will inspire you to question everything you experience. Psychology may satisfy your scientific and enquiring mind, leading you to apply your knowledge outside the classroom. In addition to learning about a wide range of engaging subjects you will also develop your analytical, evaluative and independent research skills.

Teaching and learning is very important to us. We teach so that it has personalised learning to both stretch and support level 3 learning styles including debate, discussions, presentations and one to one support.
It is always necessary to be fully equipped for lessons in readiness for learning. This includes writing stationary and writing pads. Textbooks and other necessary resources are loaned to you over the course of your A levels.
You will be assessed regularly throughout the course through independent learning tasks, quizzes, tests and calendared trial exams. This will allow you to measure your progress in the subject.
