The Teacher

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.

Examination Centres

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.

General points

Assessment will be carried out continuously throughout lessons, via homework or short tests. Final examination includes multiple choice, short answer and extended written questions.
