Psychology at Kesteven Grantham's Girl School
Psychology is the study of how people think, feel and react to others. At A level we attempt to answer questions such as, ‘What causes aggressive behaviour?’, ‘How can we best treat depression?’, and ‘How accurate are our memories?’ In order to answer such questions, we will be examining a wide range of theories (explanations) and the evidence psychologists have gathered to support or refute these theories.
Psychologists gather this evidence using a range of methods including experiments, interviews, case studies, questionnaires and observations. You will be taught what these methods entail, why they are useful and their limitations. You will be encouraged to look critically at psychological theories and evidence in order to develop skills of analysis and evaluation.
The normal criteria for entry are: Passes at A*- C in both English and mathematics 6 A*- B grade GCSEs A grade B or above in the subjects you wish to study at Advanced level.
