The sciences are amongst the most popular and successful subjects at Reigate Grammar School.

Psychology is the scientific study of the mind and behavior. It utilises a variety of skills (description, application and evaluation) all of which combine to teach students to consider a wide variety of behaviours and critically evaluate these. Studying Psychology opens a wealth of opportunities at university and in the wider world.

Students will learn to plan, conduct and evaluate psychological research and experiments. In addition, students will explore areas such as early psychopathology, social psychology, gender development and memory and forgetting.

Students are strongly encouraged to engage in wider reading to stretch their understanding. They will also have the opportunity of listening to key speakers in the subject to further their interest. Extra-curricular opportunities include lectures at Royal Holloway University, guest speakers in Biopsychology and the opportunity to explore London on foot to consider the history of mental health diagnosis and treatment.

A weekly Psychology society meeting, alongside Economics and Theology and Philosophy enhances the curriculum and offers students the opportunity to discuss current topics and consider multiple viewpoints.
