Social Sciences

β€œNeither the life of an individual nor the history of a society can be understood without understanding both." Charles Wright MillsΒ 

The Social Science department at Waldegrave offers both Psychology and Sociology at A Level. The social sciences aim to examine and explain human beings and their behaviour. They also aim to equip students with the skills to critically evaluate the society around them; we want students to feel empowered to ask challenging questions of the ever-changing and more complex social world around them.Β 

A wide range of teaching strategies are used in the department. Both subjects are delivered by specialist teachers who are committed to delivering engaging lessons that consistently support and challenge students. Lessons are planned to develop critical thinking skills that allow students to form reasoned and evidenced evaluations. Opportunities outside the classroom are offered such as academic speakers, conferences and lectures that stimulate interest and debate: students enjoy the diverse experiences they receive.

Psychology students study both social and biological aspects of behaviour. It is the scientific study of the human mind and behaviour, and Waldegrave students find it intriguing and relevant. The AQA qualification promotes the development of a wide range of skills including interpreting and critically assessing scientific data and researching and evaluating a range of sources. In Sociology, students follow the AQA A Level which inspires students to reflect upon the world we live in, fostering an understanding of the inter-relationships between individuals, groups, institutions and societies. Students have the exciting opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the world around them and reflect on social issues that are often relevant to their own social experiences.

Students report the huge benefits that studying the social sciences bring and many students go on to study the social sciences at university, leading to a diverse range of careers. The department occupies a unique position in the sixth form and generates a distinct way of viewing the social world.
