Social Sciences

Social Sciences is made up of Psychology, Sociology and Health and Social Care.

At Maltings Academy, Psychology, Sociology and Health and Social Care are offered at Key Stages 4 and 5.

The aim of Social Sciences is to study human society, focusing on understanding society as a whole and individuals within it.

At Key Stage 4 the curriculum offers an introduction into the courses.

At Key Stage 5 learners are required to explore in more detail why individuals behave the way they do and understand how society functions and the impact of this.

Health and Social Care learners cover elements from the health sector and the social care sector, such as nursing and social work careers.

We aim to inspire learners and make them enthusiastic about possible career pathways linked to the social sciences department.
