POLITICS

POLITICS OVERVIEW

This course is an excellent way of learning to understand the modern world. The study of British and global issues offers the students an insight into some of the most important forces that shape all our lives.

Our students are politically engaged and interested in current affairs. They have held mock elections in school and are passionate debaters! We use a wide range of methods to enhance students’ awareness of recent changes, including TV and radio broadcasts, newspaper articles and policy papers.

We are excited to be offering the new linear Politics A level. The Edexcel specification will allow pupils to explore UK politics in greater depth, including the role of the media in influencing election outcomes, and case studies of specific UK elections. The A level will also include a new component on politics in the USA, allowing students to make comparisons between the UK and US systems.

THE POLITICS CURRICULUM

Based in the main school building, girls are taught in purpose-built classrooms.  When required for research purposes some lessons may be taught in one of the state-of-the-art ICT suites.
