Curriculum Aims

Sociology helps students develop a wide range of knowledge and understanding about society, and how sociologists study and understand its structures, processes and issues. Sociology is exciting, interesting and relevant to students' lives. Sociology GCSE is taught in many schools throughout the UK. As it was developed from the A Level, it is a challenging subject that stretches students to use sophisticated language and extend their knowledge and vocabulary. We aim for Sociology to help our students make sense of the world they live in. We hope that it would lead them to become critically thinking, all-rounded, active members of society.

GCSE Results:

Our results last year were 65% A*-C. This is in line with the national average. We envision that our results will only improve each year.
