Humanities and Social Science Distance Learning

Any well-rounded education will include at least one of the humanities and social sciences alongside the “core” subjects such as English and Maths.

We offer five or the most popular humanities and social science subjects – History, Geography, Religious Studies, Psychology and Sociology – at (I)GCSE level, and three of them – History, Sociology and Psychology – at A-level.
