Citizenship

Mr Brown   Mrs Bunter   Ms O’Connor

We teach Citizenship and PSHE to all Year groups. We also offer GCSE Citizenship as an option.

During lessons we teach a variety of topics ranging from human rights and advocacy to government and politics.. We hope to equip all of our students with the ability to make well informed decisions on all aspects of their lives and the motivation to make positive contributions in their own communities and wider world.

In key stage 3 students learn about community and identity, politics and participation and the criminal justice system. In Key stage 4 all students do aspects of citizenship through the LIfecourse programme but there is an option to choose GCSE Citizenship as a GCSE. Currently we are following the AQA syllabus.
