Hello, my name is Fiona Bridgman and I am Subject Leader for Sociology at Roundwood Park School.
Sociology is the study of society and interactions between individuals within the community. At RPS we follow the AQA specification and study four main topics, Families and Households, Education, The Media and Crime and Deviance. As part of the course, we look at different theoretical views and research in these areas such as Marxism, Feminism, Post modernism and Functionalism. We also consider what makes someone become a criminal and the role of primary versus secondary socialisation as well as the power and influence of the media in today’s society.

Please do contact me if you would like any further information, my contact details are at the end of the full-length video. I look forward to seeing you in September.
