Year 11 Psychology students have designed and conducted an original research investigation into attitudes. This assignment also required students to analyse data and critically evaluate the results. They have presented their findings as scientific posters, which have been on public display at the MHS library since 17/08/16. (Teacher: Sam Crocket)
