GCSE Sociology 

Why choose this subject?

Sociology is a subject that helps us look more objectively at our society and other societies. It directs us to how parts of society fit together and changes. We are faced with an ever increasingly complex and rapidly changing society and sociology will give you the skills to draw conclusions and be a part of the change. We will look closely at current issues in society and how we could strategically improve some social issues.
