Psychology (A Level)

For the most up to date information about courses being offered in the next upcoming academic year (for study from the following September), please view our prospectus by clicking below.


Psychology is the scientific study of the mind, questioning how the brain dictates and influences our behaviour through conscious and unconscious processes such as communication, thought and emotion. A broad range of pertinent topics, including attachment relationships, gender and memory help students their own development, while aggression, social influence and issues and around stress and mental health help prepare them for the challenges of the modern world. Psychology encourages students to develop their own perspectives on who we are as individuals and groups, and improves our collective understanding of how we make decisions and interact with others.
