“A failure is not always a mistake, it may simply be the best someone can do under the circumstances. The real mistake is to stop trying.” - B F Skinner
Psychology at Biddenham gives students the opportunity to study principles of investigating human and animal behaviour.
Students can study AS or A Level Psychology (Eduqas) at Key Stage 5.
Lessons aim to be both theoretical and practical. In addition to lessons students are expected to work independently outside of the classroom. This work would typically involve research, note-taking, exam practice, revision and provide creative learning opportunities. As part of the course students engage in practical research.
The department utilises Google Classroom to encourage engagement with both learning and technology. Lesson resources are therefore accessible outside of the classroom. We also have a dedicated classroom to provide links to additional materials of interest to anyone studying Psychology, for example, TV shows, news/magazine articles.
The exam specifications have a significant focus on English, Maths and Science skills, and we support students with this throughout their lessons.
