Sociology

Curriculum Intent

The Sociology curriculum aims to ensure that students are inquisitive about the society that they are part of, and also of the bigger global picture. Students are required to ask questions about relationships, behaviours and identities that will encourage them to critically analyse sociological explanations in real depth. It aims to ensure that students are able to see that what we initially see at face value is not always accurate and it ensures that students engage in probing beyond this.
