GCSE Sociology

The Sociology programme is an academically challenging and rewarding introduction to the field of social science.  Pupils will engage with sociological theories and studies across a range of topics. 

Pupils will sit two examinations at the end of the course, the first of which will focus on the sociology of families and education, whilst the second is on the sociology of crime and deviance and social stratification. 

Pupils will be required to utilise information from key sources and scientific studies, and the course will develop skills suitable for pupils looking to progress to further studies in a wide range of fields.  At GCSE level, pupils will sit Sociology examinations with AQA.
