If you study A Level Psychology at Carmel you can expect to be taught by well-qualified, enthusiastic and very experienced staff. Above all, you will be challenged to realise your potential in a variety of exciting and innovative ways.

Psychology is the scientific study of behaviour and is primarily concerned with investigating what people do and why. The department has a history of high achievement well above the national average. Therefore, if you listen to the guidance offered by your tutors you too could be a Psychologist of the future!

What Our Students Say

Psychology is interesting because it delves into the reasons people behave the way they do which is explained from a variety of different approaches.

Studying Psychology also develops transferable skills, such as maths to interpret data, evaluating research studies and the use of science in the field of Bio-psychology. I have also developed my essay writing ability which will benefit me enormously whilst at university.

After I leave Carmel, I hope to go on to study Biological Sciences at the University of Liverpool.
