Psychology is a popular and rare opportunity provided by Chesterton Community Sports College, giving pupils the chance to study what makes all of us tick. The course is ran as a GCSE within the Science Department and covers areas such as dreaming, cognition, fears and nature/nurture.

Pupils who study GCSE Psychology will look at the following topics 

  • How we see the world...
  • Is dreaming meaningful?
  • Do TV and video games affect young people behaviour?
  • Why do we have phobias?
  • Are criminals born or made?

Pupils enjoy discussions and debates about how the mind works. Pupils often discuss current topical issues and relate them to their learning.
