Psychology translates as 'the study of the human mind'. 

Psychology is everywhere around us. It is intriguing, applicable to real life, it is scientific and above all it is thought provoking. Psychology offers you the opportunity to learn about the science behind human behaviour by understanding how research is conducted and used to develop theories and laws about human behaviour.

In Psychology we use two main approaches to help our students retain the knowledge they need in their long term memory.

The first is spaced repetition. As psychology students we know the capacity of short-term memory and how information is processed into long-term memory. We ensure that we plan for revision information regularly and that students check their revision notes regularly.

The second approach we use is interleaving. When preparing for examinations, we support students within our lesson planning to keep mixing, or interleave, multiple subjects or topics while they study in order to improve their learning.
