Sociology is offered as a GCSE subject at Smithills. We follow the AQA specification, which includes the study of Education, the Family, Power, Crime and Social Inequality.
The GCSE specification is fully examined, with no coursework. All exams take place at the end of year 11. Students are encouraged to question evidence and issues and develop their critical and evaluation skills.
Further details of the content in our specification can be found on;
A brand new GCSE Sociology is being established for our current year 9 groups. Updates of new content will appear here as soon as it is confirmed.
