Run Psychology A-Level at the Henrietta Barnett School

This petition had 393 supporters

The recent decisions not to run Classical Civilisation and Drama A-level caused great distress to some girls in the year, and we feel scrapping Psychology just yesterday as well, really is the last straw. It is too late to apply for many other schools, and for some girls in the year who wanted to take a combination of these three, this is seriously affecting their future. We feel betrayed by our school's ethos, which has always valued artistic and interdisciplinary subjects just as much as scientific and academic subjects. The new deadline for a level choices is now friday, and girls have not been given the option of choosing 3 rather than 4 a levels. The school has suspected for months that it would not be feasible to run these subjects, despite giving persuasive and rather deceiving talks on them in the run up to the original a level deadline, and only informing us yesterday of the sad news. This decision has closed doors to girls wishing to do psychology at university, and has made us doubt The Henrietta Barnett School's word. Please sign the petition, the school is more likely to wake up to 100 of us screaming than just 6. Thank you.
