Citizenship studies is an integral part of the school curriculum aiming to develop students understanding and awareness of local, national and international issues.
Citizenship studies is offered at GCSE level and students complete the full AQA accredited course over two years, during which they complete two controlled assessment tasks and two exams.
The controlled assessment tasks require the students to take part in active citizenship campaigns and engage with professionals in the field.
At KS4, students investigate a wide variety of current affairs issues and consider the impact that these have on the global population. Students are expected to immerse themselves in topics of interest and gain an in depth understanding of international politics, conflict and rights and responsibilities.
