Image of London Visit inspires Psychologists

44 AS level Psychology students visited London on a 2 day residential to learn more about various aspects of Psychology. Students visited the Science Museum where they measured their personality and memory as well as finding out about the different methods used in Psychology to study behaviour including brain scanning methods. Following some free time in Covent Garden students watched the evening performance of the West End musical ‘Billy Elliot' learning more about how politics, upbringing and social class can affect our behaviour. Abbi Parry really enjoyed the musical saying ‘Billy Elliot was a brilliant performance and a great end to the day’.

The following day students explored London Zoo where they observed a range of animals to see if the characteristics of an animal are linked to how much we fear them. Students attended a talk in the ‘Bugs’ exhibition where they had chance to hold a cockroach and also see a tarantula up close. Kelly Ly said ‘The experience at London Zoo helped me understand why characteristics in some animals may cause fear by observing the bugs’. Yazzmin Bonner also said ‘ The trip was a great learning experience and fun as well’.

The Sixth Form College organises dozens of UK-wide educational trips each year, reinforcing the classroom teaching and giving students the opportunity to expand their horizons.
