Citizenship

The study of GCSE Citizenship is appropriate for students who are interested in studying Politics, Law and Sociology at college or university. Citizenship  is an option subject that students can select to study in KS4. Students will have the opportunity to develop their understanding and appreciation of key citizenship issues, historically and in the present day. Students will expand upon prior knowledge and skills in areas including: human rights and responsibilities; law and  criminal justice; elections and referendums; political parties and the political process and the role of the media and active citizenship.

Students will also consider the impact of these issues within their own lives at home, in school and in the wider community.
