PsychImagePsychology as an AS/A2 subject was introduced in September 2006 and has proved to be a popular A Level choice. With our first set of examination results in August 2007, 92% of students achieved grade A or B. We hope to continue this success as the department grows. Currently there is one teacher of Psychology delivering the AS and A2 courses.

What is Psychology?

Psychology is the study of PEOPLE – how they think, act, react and interact. It focuses on all aspects of behaviour and thoughts, feelings and motivations behind those behaviours.

Why Study Psychology?

Psychology is a popular degree choice as it is addresses an area which is of obvious interest to many students. In addition, it provides skills and knowledge that employers value, while also giving flexibility in terms of future career choices. It involves performing experiments, analysing results, researching and evaluating previous studies across a wide range of areas. These include Cognitive, Biological, Social and Developmental Psychology, Individual differences and Research methods.
