Curriculum intent

Psychology is the study of people and aspects of their behaviour: how they think, react, interact.

What are the biological and cultural influences on the way we behave? Why do we laugh, argue, lead, follow, feel stressed and develop different personalities?

Modern psychologists use scientific methods to analyse behaviour. They will observe, measure, test hypotheses, experiment and use statistics to analyse their results.

Psychologists are employed in all areas of work such as education, forensics, occupational and clinical health and many more. They make a valuable contribution to life today.


Key Stage 5 students can opt to study A Level Psychology through the AQA exam board.
