IB Psychology at The Malling School

Course description

This course is the systematic study of behaviour and mental processes. It examines the interaction of biological, cognitive and sociocultural influences on human behaviour. Students undertaking the course can expect to develop an understanding of how psychological knowledge is generated, developed and applied. This will allow them to have a greater understanding of themselves and appreciate the diversity of human behaviour. The holistic approach reflected in the curriculum, sees biological, cognitive and sociocultural analysis being taught in an integrated way to ensure that students are able to develop an understanding of what all humans share, as well as the immense diversity of influences on human behaviour and mental processes. The ethical concerns raised by the methodology and application of psychological research are also key considerations of the IB psychology course.

      Our school is built on traditional values where mutual respect is developed between pupils and staff. We expect pupils to be polite and courteous and to take a pride in their work and their school. This is what we call ‘The Malling School Way’.

      On joining the school every member of staff commits to deliver the very best education to our pupils. This means ensuring that the most able are stretched whilst others are given more support. It means developing a personalised curriculum that meets the needs and aspirations of each one of our pupils so that even the most ambitious dreams can be realised.

      Parents tell us they like our traditional ethos, small school and ambitious culture. They tell us their children feel supported. Visitors always comment on our purposeful learning atmosphere and how pupils always hold doors open for them. We invite you to come and experience The Malling School for yourself.
