Citizenship  (Post 16)

Our Curriculum

GCSE Citizenship gives students the opportunity to develop their political literacy and partake in democracy. Students learn about life in modern Britain including British Values, the UK’s role in international organisations and making a difference to society. Rights and Responsibilities will be explored linking to the legal system, universal human rights and bringing change to the legal system. Students will learn about politics and participation such as political powers in the UK and bringing about political change. Citizenship will empower students to investigate and research an issue as part of an active citizenship campaign which could be encouraging the UK parliament to lower the voting age to campaigning to become a more sustainable school. Students will build skills for life and develop an understanding of how to positively impact their community.
