Sociology is taught by teachers within the health and social care department and currently offered to post-16 students as an A level.

Sixth Form

This is a two year A level course which broadly divides into two sections: compulsory content which looks at the various strands of sociology such as research methods, culture and identity, and social inequality. There are also specialised units such as family and crime and deviance. This course is wholly assessed through examination. 

There will be three examination papers at the end of the course:
• Unit 1: Socialisation, culture and identity (1h30m) 30% of total A level
• Unit 2: Researching and understanding social inequalities (2h15m) 35% of total A level
• Unit 3: Debates in contemporary society (2h15m) 35% of total A level
