In the Social Sciences students have the option to study Health and Social Care, Psychology and/or Sociology at A Level. These subjects focus on understanding people and their relationship with the society around them. Students develop a range of skills related to the carrying out of social research and the critical analysis and evaluation of classic and modern studies.
Students may take part in psychological experiments (for example – on memory), role plays (for example – one to one and group communications), and give a range of presentations in class. Health and Social Care students undertake work experience placements to a number of local Health and Social Care settings (for example – nurseries, primary schools, residential homes and day care centres).
