Politics is studied in the sixth form at A’ level. We currently follow the OCR syllabus but will be moving to AQA when the reformed A’ level begins in September 2017
In Year 12 students study Contemporary Politics of the UK and Contemporary Government of the UK.
In Year 13 students study Contemporary US Government and Politics and US Government and Politics (a comparative unit). AQA also includes a unit on political ideologies
Each year the department runs a trip to the Houses of Parliament and gives students opportunities to attend conferences where speakers representing the UK’s main political parties share their views.
