Goverment and Politics at The Grange School

Course description

Politics in its broadest sense is the activity through

which people make, preserve and amend the general

rules under which they live. The study of Politics at A

level is a social science in which the UK political system

and the major political ideologies are studied.

It has been designed to encourage interest in and

enthusiasm for the study of Government and Politics

and will enable students to develop insight into political

beliefs central to an understanding of the modern world.

There is no specific entry requirement to study Politics, but extended writing

obviously requires a good grasp of English.

Curiosity about the world around you and a willingness to keep up with current

affairs are essential to appreciate the contemporary nature of this subject.

Students will visit the Houses of Parliament during the AS year.
