Social Sciences at AGS

Social Sciences at Allerton Grange is a multidisciplinary department, delivering courses, mainly A levels, in Criminology, Health and Social Care, Law, Psychology, Sociology and the Extended Project Qualification.

Students benefit from being taught by a team of eight professionals in the Social Sciences department, based in the Sixth Form Centre. This allows you to broaden your knowledge and experience, and explore options for future study and career paths.

Health and Social Care is a Year 9 option module which is taught to Year 10 and 11, so some students may decide to continue with this subject at Sixth Form. For most post-16 students, Social Sciences are new subjects.

Studying these subjects helps you to critically examine the social world around you, ask questions and understand how to make changes, responding to the needs of society.
