The A Level Sociology course is one of the top performing courses in the college for both AS and A2 results and student attendance. The majority of students are highly engaged with the subject, demonstrated by a significant number of students attending the extracurricular ‘Sociology Club’, which explores theory beyond the context of the curriculum.
5 GCSEs at grades A* to C including a Grade B or above in English Language or English Literature. You do not need to have taken sociology at GCSE.
Throughout the programme, students study interrelationship between society and the individual; exploring how we acquire culture and the influence of social structures on every aspect of our lives. The course explores family, education, crime and deviance, inequality and social research methods. Students are encouraged to think beyond the curriculum, and engage in applying theory beyond the confines on the WJEC syllabus, to develop a genuine depth of knowledge of sociological enquiry in preparation for undergraduate study.
A2 Unit 3: Crime and Deviance Unit 4: Social Inequality and Applied Research Methods 100% examination (one exam for each of the four units)
Following their success on the A Level Sociology programme, the majority of students progress to universities including Cardiff, Bristol, Manchester and Birmingham to study subjects within the Social Sciences.
