The Marlborough Science Academy


Psychology at Marlborough aims to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of the scientific study of human behaviour and the mind. The course aims to engage and foster a genuine interest and inquisitiveness into the mind and human behaviour.

Psychology emphasises the importance of treating all individuals with respect and dignity, regardless of their background or circumstances. This is reflected in the ethical guidelines that psychologists must follow when conducting research. 

Students are taught the scientific ability to study human nature, they are challenged to question their assumptions and biases, and to consider alternative perspectives. This requires courage and an open-minded approach to learning. This is reflected in the topics covered, such as cognitive psychology and perception. 

The course covers a range of different topics that allow students to explore the human mind from the classroom, topics such as mental health and disorders, which require a compassionate approach to understanding and treating individuals who are struggling with these issues. 

The course encourages students to develop empathy and understanding towards others, which is essential for building positive relationships and promoting well-being. This is reflected in the topics covered, such as social psychology and relationships. 

Students can attain the highest A-level grades, which will enable them to access an increasingly competitive world. In addition, students are encouraged to engage in independent research and critical thinking, which promotes a strong work ethic and a commitment to learning. This is reflected in the assessments, which require students to demonstrate their ability to apply psychological theories and concepts to real-world situations.
