Psychology

The Head of Department is Mrs Walker

Our department Bible verse is: “But test everything, hold fast what is good.” (1 Thessalonians 5:21)

Key Stage 4

Psychology is the science of the mind. It allows students to investigate and research the world around us, with particular focus on human nature. The human mind is the most complex machine on Earth, and through Psychology, you will gain the skills to begin to understand it. Students will be able to analyse many fascinating psychological theories and research studies throughout the course.
