Government and Politics
The AS course in Politics introduces students to the key channels of communication between government and the people in the UK. It encourages them to look at whether the existing arrangements for ensuring democracy and representation are adequate.
The A2 course in Politics extends students’ understanding of key themes in political analysis. For Unit 3, the students focus on American politics and the framework of US government and society. For Unit 4, they study global politics, which covers: war and terrorism; human rights; the environment; and development.
Girls in Year 13 now sit their Unit 3 examination in the January of their A2 course.
What could I go on to do at the end of my course?
Students who have studied Politics can go on to study a degree in Politics, or a combined degree with subjects including History, English and Modern Languages. Many girls studying Politics at A level go on to read International Relations at university. All the leading universities offer a vast and exciting range of Politics degrees. Students considering a career in law, the media, economics and business, international relations and the civil service are advised to take Politics at A level.
The Politics department invites a range of visiting speakers and lecturers to the school; the girls also visit the UK Parliament and the UK Supreme Court.
