All students in year 10 and 11 follow OCR sociology. They are taught 3 periods of 50 minutes per week. Within this syllabus students cover topics including Family, Education and Crime and Deviance in year 10 and poverty, Power and politics and Employment in year 11. Each student produces a coursework enquiry in year 11.
The Sociology Department has an excellent record of student achievement. In 2008 87% of our entry of 120 GCSE Sociology students achieved A* to C. We have higher expectations of our six classes of year 11 students this year.
In Years 12 and 13 we teach AS and A levels in Sociology following the AQA specifications. In Year 12, under the new specifications, students follow modules in Family, Education and Methods. In Year 13 they study Religion, Theory and Methods and Crime and Deviance.
