You do not need to have studied Politics at GCSE in order to take this course. It is more important that you have a lively and enquiring mind, an interest in current affairs, and a desire to explore new ideas. However, we do ask that you get a 5 or above in English or Humanities.
We have included curriculum overviews as well as exam information to support students and parents/carers to have a better and broader understanding of how learning develops in each year group. The curriculum overview documents below indicate: the knowledge, skills and understanding that students will gain, how this unit builds on prior learning, and what mastery will look like for each year group. This year, we have added a catch up summary at the beginning to outline how we will catch up on lost learning during school closure. The red writing also indicates where the curriculum has been changed this academic year to support student catch up.
