Psychology

Psychology GCSE follows the AQA syllabus which offers an engaging and comprehensive introduction to Psychology.  We cover a range of Psychological topics including:

  • Memory

  • Perception

  • Development

  • Research methods

  • Social influence

  • Language, thought and communication

  • Brain and neuropsychology

  • Psychological problems

The course covers a variety of disciplines within Psychology, and also complements the IB course, although it is not necessary to take GCSE Psychology in order to study the subject in the sixth form. Students will be expected to draw on knowledge and understanding of the entire course of study to show a deeper understanding of these topics.

Assessment is by two written examinations, taken at the end of Year 11.
