Psychology

Psychology is the scientific study of the mind, examining the way people behave and think. It is an extremely popular subject choice; students are offered the opportunity to explore and challenge their own and other's opinions. In Psychology we learn about and perform critical analysis of studies and theories pertinent to the discipline. Psychology at EEHS provides students with the opportunity to achieve both an A-level and to develop a skill set applicable to many areas of their life so that learning continues beyond the classroom.
