Government & Politics

Offered at Key Stage 5, Government and Politics seeks to develop students’ understanding of both domestic and wider politics from a variety of different cultures and backgrounds. It aims to connect students with political ideology and to be able to understand the relationship between these ideas and the institutions and processes created to administer them. The course develops students extended writing skills as well as their analytical and evaluative abilities to gain a greater understanding of the world in which they live and how it is governed.
