Homework will be given at the end of each week, usually in the form of problems to solve, researching key concepts.
24 /7 access to all teacher feedback, progress and grades. Teacher consultations available on request.
Hi my name is Alisdair Taylor (Ph.D) and I am head of psychology at CHS. I have extensive experience in teaching and researching psychology. My teaching style relies on honesty, patience and transparency. My students tend to do very well indeed in their examinations when they study and work hard. I play tennis regularly and am a sports enthusiast in general.
The course will follow the current AQA GCSE specifications.
The course will be based on the textbooks recommended for AQA GCSE psychology.
This specification enables learners to develop their understanding of all aspects of psychology providing a firm basis from which to springboard into A-level and beyond.

It is the student's responsibility to arrange their examinations - our teachers will provide all the support required. Most students will sit their examination papers at a local school or college. Some students sit their examinations at private examination centres (Google these or ask and we can provide a list) or the British Council for international students.
Assessment will be carried out continuously throughout lessons, via homework or short tests. Final examination includes multiple choice, short answer and extended written questions.
