Psychology is a well-established and popular department. Well over 750 students take A level Psychology (AQA A), taught by ten teachers, nine of whom are full time.  All teachers teach across the whole specification, as groups are generally not shared.  AS Psychology is also offered to a small number of Year 13 students.

The department also offers the WJEC Level 3 Diploma in Applied Criminology with numbers expected to rise to over 200 students in 2021-22.

The department works closely as a team.  Every teacher takes on an element of course leadership and planning of teaching resources is shared.

We have extremely high standards for all our students and aim to develop their knowledge, skills and experience in a stimulating and varied learning environment.  We look to exploit diverse strategies of teaching, learning, motivation and tracking so that all students are able to access the understanding and knowledge needed to prepare them effectively for examination and beyond.
