Creative and critical thinking.
Politics is taught only in the Sixth Form. We follow the Edexcel specification, teaching UK Government and Politics at AS and American Politics, route C, at A2.
A significant number of students go on to read History, Politics, or combined honours courses at top universities. The department (including History) has also enjoyed regular success at Oxbridge.
The department runs a variety of study visits for different year groups, including an annual visit to Parliament and biennial trip to Washington and New York. In the Sixth Form there is a History and Politics society run by the students themselves which involves guest speakers and presentations by both students and staff.
