Government and Politics at Calday Grange Grammar School
The Edexcel course provides an introduction to the processes and institutions of British Government at AS level and then American Government at A2 level. Students will gain a basic understanding of the concepts of democracy and representation, and also they will cover the functions of the three main branches of government. This is not a historical course, and there is an emphasis on contemporary politics. Students will be encouraged to follow current affairs and make sense of political developments during their period of study. The course highlights recent constitutional reform in the UK in such areas as devolu-tion and the House of Lords, and proposed reforms in the USA in such areas as campaign finance.
The basic school entry requirement is sufficient for this subject. A GCSE in History would be preferable but it is not essential. Perhaps more than either of these, a keen interest in current affairs is highly desirable
