For almost all students psychology is a totally new subject in Sixth Form. This offers a fantastic opportunity to start with a blank canvas, on a level playing field with your peers. We will introduce new concepts and methodologies, concentrating on the basics to enable you to master the building blocks of this discipline.
You will benefit from learning in small classes, with ready access to support from subject specialist teachers. There are teacher surgeries during two lunchtimes each week, where you can bring particular questions or issues for extra teaching support, although you are very welcome at other times too!
