Social Science & Care is a well-established and high achieving learning area, with a clear history of supporting students to exceed their target grades. Subjects are taught by a highly qualified team of specialists, some of whom are nationally acclaimed authors in their subjects. Our Social Science students enjoy a variety of trips throughout the year to national and international destinations and work experience can be organised while on our courses. Our Care students have compulsory work placements throughout the year in varied locations.
I absolutely loved my time at Itchen. My teachers were very helpful and if I had any problems with anything I always had help. The best teacher I've ever had by far was James Bailey (Psychology). He goes above and beyond to help his students in any way he possibly can. James is a clear example of what an amazing and passionate teacher is and is what they should all be.
