College entry (please refer to the Entry Requirements section for further details).
100% Examination which are made up of 3 exams at the end of Year 13.
During the course you will develop your understanding of crime and deviance, education, beliefs in society and the family. The criminology module will ask you to consider if crimes like drug use and prostitution actually serve a positive function in society; does the government lie, cheat, kill, steal and then cover up their crimes as they have the power, control and wealth; statistically, why do certain ethnic minorities commit more crime and why do women commit less? In Education, you will look at the purpose of the system we have in the UK; why girls always do better than boys and why working class people are potentially disadvantaged by the education system.
For year 11 students who have applied and joining us in year 12
