    A Level Psychology

Introduction

If you have an enquiring mind, a good sense of humour and enjoy reading and debating then this is the subject for you. The study of Psychology will enable you to gain fascinating insights into human and animal behaviour. Students will study behaviour from a variety of different theoretical perspectives. Psychologists use scientific methods, but their main subject matter is human beings, so Psychology is a subject that links the Humanities and Sciences. Students will design, conduct and report on their own experimental research investigations. A wide range of teaching and learning activities are utilised to study interesting topics such as attraction, eating disorders, child development, aggression and the media.

Entry Requirements

Students should have a GCSE 6, or higher, in Maths or Science, and a GCSE 6, or higher, in a Humanities subject or English.

Curriculum Overview & Exam Information

We have included curriculum overviews as well as exam information to support students and parents/carers to have a better and broader understanding of how learning develops in each year group. The curriculum overview documents below indicate: the knowledge, skills and understanding that students will gain, how this unit builds on prior learning, and what mastery will look like for each year group. This year, we have added a catch up summary at the beginning to outline how we will catch up on lost learning during school closure. The red writing also indicates where the curriculum has been changed this academic year to support student catch up.
