Psychology is the scientific study of thought, emotion and behaviour, posing more questions than it has provided answers for. It is a fascinating, exciting and ever developing subject.
The perfect course for those of you who want to understand people and the drivers of human behaviour, whilst developing your critical thinking. This understanding can be valuable in a diverse range of environments, and knowledge of psychology has a wide variety of career applications, from education, health and the economy, to crime, marketing and politics, to the work of professional psychologists, counsellors and therapists making a difference in people’s lives.
Studying Psychology at A-level at Wisbech Grammar School is more than just the study of a science; the course allows you to engage in debates on contemporary issues with an awareness of a wealth of research. You will develop your analytical skills, training your brain to think beyond what is presented in front of you, challenging established findings that have been posed over the years, testing and questioning different theories, opinions and famous case studies.
Looking at why we think, feel and behave the way we do, you will improve your understanding of yourself and those around you, of human dynamics and behaviour. You will develop essential knowledge and understanding of different areas of the subject, how they relate to each other and how they can be applied to everyday life.
