The aim of the psychology curriculum is to equip students with the appropriate knowledge, skills and vocabulary needed to be able to understand and explain the causes of human behaviour. Students will understand underlying psychological principles and apply them in a variety of familiar and unfamiliar contexts. Students will be constantly challenged to work collaboratively and think independently when engaging in all lessons and class debates, and as a result students will be able to think analytically and reach logical conclusions based on scientific evidence.

The intent for the Psychology curriculum is to ensure that our young psychologists are equipped with the necessary scientific knowledge, skills and vocabulary to develop a better understanding of themselves and the wider world. The psychology curriculum will enable our learners to value the importance of Psychological research and will promote an awe-driven curiosity of the human body and mind.
