A Level Sociology
Sociology aims to help students develop a fundamental understanding of the world around them. In an increasingly diverse and ever-changing world students can apply academic methods to better understand human behaviour and begin to discover for themselves why people do what they do. We are always asking why in Sociology, it is a theme that runs deep into the curriculum itself.
The course follows the AQA specification studying the core topics, Education, Crime and Deviance and Theories and Methods. Of the optional topics in we have selected Beliefs in Society and Families and Households, we believe this breakdown of the units is the best one to develop the curiosity of our students as well as to build on the School Ethos and the skills and interests of our students with a central focus on contemporary UK society and changes within a globalised context.
The course is challenging by its very nature and changes the way students perceive the world, it is contemporary, and teachers refresh the curriculum regularly to ensure it is both relevant and topical. Students are encouraged to make links with their other subjects and develop their opinions as well as their evaluative skills. Sociology is an excellent foundation for many different academic pathways and supports the development of students beyond their A levels.
