Psychology is the scientific study of human behaviour and mental processes. It is an interesting, dynamic and challenging course to study at A Level. Psychology A Level enables pupils to study and learn key skills at an in-depth advanced level, for example, critical thinking, data analysis and analytic skills. Whilst pupils will be using these skills in a Psychology sense while studying, they are also extremely useful and transferable for use at University or the world of work.
Our aim is for pupils to move beyond the ‘common-sense’ explanations of behaviour. There are a number of core topics pupils must study. These areas include the diverse range of subjects from Forensic psychology, Autism, Schizophrenia and Child Development. A mix of individual and group coursework ensures pupils will take an active role in every part of the theoretical and research side of Psychology.
