Psychology Curriculum

Curriculum Statement

A level Psychology will foster an interest in human behaviour, with a strong focus on the use of scientific methodologies. There will be an emphasis on critical thinking and application to real world issues and ethics throughout. Topics covered will give learners a good range of knowledge that reflect the interests of learners shown during previous years and gained from discussions in pre A level events. In Year 12 approaches and research methods are introduced before the rest of the topics are started to highlight their importance throughout, before focussing more completely at the end of the term so the details are fresh for revision and tests.
