A-Level Politics

Students study a linear Politics course involving a two year study of UK politics, US politics and political theories such as conservatism, socialism, liberalism and feminism. We study the workings and structure of the political systems in each country, comparing them and evaluating them. Students must keep up with the news and be able to use recent event, as well as historical events, as evidence in their writing.

A-Level Politics Specification



In order to support the curriculum politics students have visited Parliament and the Supreme Court in London. They also host local MPs and councillors in hustings and question time sessions. Students have also run election campaigns and referendum campaigns to link with national events.
