GCSE Sociology

At KS4, students have the opportunity to study GCSE Sociology, which is the scientific study of society.  Sociology students study human social life, groups and societies; investigate and explain the social world and our behaviour in it, and understand the ways in which society influences us and shapes our daily lives. 

At Park Vale Academy, we follow the AQA specification, which covers the following topics:

  • Studying Society
  • Education
  • Families
  • Crime and Deviance
  • Mass Media
  • Power
  • Social inequality
