Government & Politics AS/A2 Level *FEES PAYABLE* at Millfield School
Government & Politics is an independent discipline
in its own right, a worthy aspiration to study later at
university. At Millfield, this A level can work well with
any combination of subjects, although the most
common might be History, English, Economics,
Philosophy, or Modern Languages.
In the Lower Sixth year (AS) pupils study British
Government & Politics and also look at the
relationship between the UK and the EU: topics
include UK elections, protest (pressure groups,
parties, redress of grievance) and ‘macro-political’
issues such as the functions and powers of the
Houses of Parliament, the power relationship
between the Prime Minister and Cabinet and the
importance of the Civil Service.
In the Upper Sixth year (A2) pupils study broadly
similar themes in American Government & Politics
as well as making comparisons between the USA
and the UK. Pupils will NOT be required to write
Grade C at GCSE English Language
is essential as a minimum and, depending upon other
results, grade B is desirable.
This course is assessed by examination only.
