Our Social Sciences courses amaze, fascinate and challenge our students in equal measure as we want students to make sense of the world they live in and give them an understanding of how to make a difference to society.
Courses offered are related to everyday life and as such are both interesting and relevant but also highly valued by employers and universities alike. Social Sciences subjects not only prepare students for their career goals but are also useful for academic reasons. We prepare our students for life after school by equipping them with a broad range of transferable skills such as analytical, critical thinking and teamwork skills.
We teach our students how to apply previously learnt information to new situations and how to engage with new concepts quickly. Social Sciences lessons encourage students to debate current topics that are significant in society so that they can develop confidence with their oracy and interpersonal skills.
With the relevant skills and knowledge our students can transition into lots of different directions for example courses and careers linked to the public sector, education, social research, the voluntary sector, the legal system, industry and health and social care.
