General Studies at Sandbach High School & Sixth Form College

Course description

General Studies is valuable because its requirements cross the boundaries of traditional academic studies in a broadening experience which universities consider desirable. It helps to develop important skills of thought, of analysis and of communication which should be part of the intellectual repertoire of any educated adult.

General Studies helps to develop an awareness of a wide range of social, cultural, economic and scientific questions that affect the world we actuall live in today; mo other subject has this range and relevance.

Furthermore, it can serve as an antidote to the superficiality of modern popular culture; its emphasis on thought, analysis and critical awareness can help develop the tools for being able to evaluate our own society.
