Welcome to Psychology
Psychology – Sixth Form Only
The aim of the Psychology and Sociology curriculum is to equip students with the appropriate knowledge and skills needed to be able to understand and explain the causes of human behaviour and the impact of this behaviour on wider society. We do this using quality first teaching which ensures students understand underlying Psychological and Sociological principles and can apply them in a variety of familiar and unfamiliar contexts. We want our ‘Invictus Sixth’ students to be able to think analytically and reach logical conclusions based on scientific evidence. Our curriculum at Wombourne High School goes far beyond what is taught in lessons, for whilst we want students to achieve the very best examination results possible, we believe our curriculum goes beyond what is examinable. Our curriculum in Psychology and Sociology constantly challenges our students to work collaboratively and think independently when engaging in all lessons and class debates.
