Social Science

We offer GCSE Sociology at KS4 and A level Sociology, Psychology and Government and Politics at KS5. The Social Sciences explain how the world around you works. Social Scientists shape our everyday lives without us even realising it. They have the power to influence governments and develop social policies, everything from how football crowds are managed by the police to how much tax you have to pay has been determined by a Social Scientist. Studying  Sociology, Psychology or Politics will answer many questions you have about society and how humans behave and interact. Once you begin studying Social Science subjects you will never look at the world in the same way again.

The Social Science department will equip you with the knowledge and skills needed to meet the challenges of the twenty-first century.  We are living through a period of rapid and profound change and being a graduate of a Social Science subject means the future won’t just happen to you, you will shape it!
