Social Sciences

Welcome

The Social Sciences Department wants all students:

  • To enjoy and become fascinated by the wonder of Social Sciences subject which they study
  • To develop as independent and analytical thinkers
  • To explore and question the social world around them
  • To achieve the highest standards of academic excellence

We teach Social Science because it encourages self-awareness and reflection about wider society. We believe it is important that all Social Science subjects are taught in an exciting and yet academically rigorous way that uses all forms of media that are available. Students are able to explore new concepts and ideas in each of the Social Science we offer which develop curiosity and a deeper understanding of social structures and behaviour. Each subject also incorporates critically analysis of data and texts which allow students to interpret and draw their own conclusions.
