Sociology - St Mary's and St John's CE School



Sociology is the exciting and empowering study of society and the structures, institutions and groups within it. At SMSJ, our student-led and spiral curriculum aims to not only provide students with the knowledge and skills needed for academic success, but those also needed to build empathy and understanding of others in a globalised world.
