Introduction to the Psychology department

Psychology is a fascinating subject and a popular choice at Wolverhampton Grammar School. The curriculum is designed to focus on the study of human behaviour and explores a number of topics including memory, attachment, stress, social psychology, visual perception, relationships and emotional intelligence as well as applied research methods. Topics are covered in themed units: cognitive psychology, development psychology, research methods, biological psychology, social psychology and individual differences.

Students particular enjoy the balance of classroom theory with “hands on” data collection and then practical application of academic ideas.

Understand psychology is not simply limited to the classroom either and all students are able to take part in the Psychology Club.
