Overview

At Key Stage 5, we follow the AQA Psychology syllabus A (AQA Specification A, 7182). The course gives students a psychological introduction and puts psychology in context in real life applications. In addition, students learn issues and debates in psychology with a theoretical background. Students have eight lessons a fortnight where we prepare students for their examinations over the two year course.
