General Studies at Stantonbury Campus

Course description

Most students in Year 12 will be expected to participate in the General Studies programme which will include a range of activities intended to broaden your general education. These will include visiting speakers, films and group discussions. Many topics will be covered from the worlds of art, sport, politics, religion and technology. Much of the input will focus on two key concepts, Conflict and Space, but our main purpose is to widen your intellectual horizons. Most students will be entered for the AS General Studies exam which has proven to be a useful additional qualification for many of our students. It provides extra UCAS points for university applications. The AS is assessed by two exams at the end of Year 12. Students will be encouraged to continue to A2. Hopefully you will be sufficiently interested in the world around you to read a newspaper and listen to or watch the news regularly.


Five level two qualifications (e.g. A* - C at GCSE) . At least four of these grades will be from GCSE.
