GCSE Sociology

GCSE Sociology gives students with an interest in social issues, social justice and current affairs the opportunity to gain valuable understanding and insight into how society works and how the structures and processes in society shape who we are, how we behave and many other aspects of our lives and life chances.

You will develop an understanding of how individuals, groups, institutions and societies are interdependent and how they co-operate and conflict with each other. You will also investigate the potential causes for the social differences between individuals.

You will be required to complete extended writing and essay tasks.
