A-Level Politics develops students’ knowledge and understanding of political institutions, processes, concepts, theories, and issues. This enables then to analyse aspects of politics and political information, including in relation to parallels, connections, similarities, and differences.
Year 12 and 13
Students study the Pearson-Edexcel A-Level specification, which will see them prepared by their teachers to sit three papers: UK Politics & Core Political Ideas, UK Government & Non-Core Political Ideas, Comparative Politics - the Government & Politics of the USA. We offer the study of a broad range of relevant and contemporary ideas, institutions, processes, and issues to support learning. Equipping our students with the expertise necessary to evaluate aspects of politics and political information, including to construct arguments, make substantiated judgements, and draw conclusions - in essence helping students to think for themselves and substantiate their points of view having considered what others have to say.
