Psychology at Calday Grange Grammar School
We have chosen to teach the AQA Psychology B specification at Calday as it is felt this provides students with a sound understanding of the key concepts, methods and approaches in psychology at both AS and A2. The students will acquire this knowledge through studying topic areas that represent the core areas of social, cognitive, biological, developmental and individual differences. These topic areas will be taught in relation to everyday applications of psychology such as memory, social influence, mood disorders, autism, schizophrenia, gender, attachment and forensic psychology. They will develop the ability to use scientific methodology in the context of psychology and its applications, as well as to communicate arguments clearly and concisely. The course will also enable the students to develop evaluative and analytical skills
Students are required to have a GSCE grade B in Biology or BB in Dual Award Science. A good grade in Mathematics and English will also be an advantage. A keen interest in understanding human behaviour and what makes us individuals would indicate this subject could be for you. Please be aware that it is a science based subject and it does involve some Mathematics. Exami-nation questions require the production of essay style answers.
