Welcome to Social Science at Hinchingbrooke!



About Social Science

We aim to equip our students with the neccessary knowledge and evidence for them to question their own responses, ideas and common sense assumptions.  Students will be encouraged to examine evidence from both a methodological and a theoretical perspective.  Students will discover the ideologies and approaches which underlie Sociology, Psychology and the Caring Professions(Health and Social Care) and to be able to apply these to every day life.  In the course of their studies they will be coached to use ICT effectively, to take part in discussions, to read the latest research and to develop the skills necessary to succeed in their examinations. Meet our team here.


From September 2015 we will be delivering the new AQA A-level for both Sociology and Psychology. You can read more about the changes here.
