The principal aim of the psychology department is to develop an appreciation and understanding of how psychology affects all aspects of society and human interaction, and how ultimately psychologists aim to improve the human condition. We achieve this through engaging lessons that emphasise the development of analysis and evaluation skills and practical work where possible. A large number of students undertake psychology A level and many go on to study psychology in Higher Education, often at Russell Group universities, including Oxford. Outside of the classroom students can pursue their specific interests in Psychology Society, where they are able to design and carry out research studies. They can also attend lectures at prestigious institutions such as The Royal Institution.
