Goverment and Politics at The Grange School
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.
Our standard academic entry requirements
into the Sixth Form at The Grange School are:
¬ Students should secure Grade A or A* in the
four or five subjects to be studied at AS level;
¬ Where the subject is not offered at GCSE
(e.g. Philosophy), we would expect to see
evidence of Grade A or A* in related subjects;
¬ These results should be accompanied with
four other GCSEs at Grade B or above which
should include English and Mathematics if
they are not one of the chosen AS subjects;
¬ Any remaining GCSE examination results
should be at Grade C or above.
