Sociology

In the Sociology department we strive to help our students discover how we, as individuals, contribute to the society in which we live.
By the end of the course students will be able to explain their knowledge of the society in which they live and analyse this critically, whilst also examining it`s similarities and differences to other cultures around the world.

Sociology is an option subject and all students are entered for a full course GCSE with AQA.
In their first year of study the topics are : Studying Society, Education and Family, and in the second year the topics are : Crime and Deviance, Mass Media and Social Inequality.

All topics will be assessed in terminal examinations at the end of the second year, there is no coursework element to this course.
