Citizenship studies introduce students to key citizenship issues and help them develop a practical understanding of what it means to be a citizen in our society today. Students will gain a deeper knowledge of democracy, government and law, acquiring knowledge and skills necessary to think deeply and critically about roles within our society. Students will learn how to create and develop sustained and reasoned arguments, present their own viewpoints and those of others and plan a practical citizenship action project which benefits society.

Year 9

In Year 9 our students will begin to explore citizenship issues relating to identity, immigration and the impact this has on British identity and culture. Later on in the course our students will learn what democracy is, and how democracy operates within the UK. They will learn how government works and how democratic and non-democratic systems of government operate.

Our students will also learn and understand the relationship between citizens' rights and responsibilities and also recognise the duties of citizens living and working in the UK.

They will learn to be critical and evaluative developing well-structured arguments and opinions to support or oppose key social issues in UK society. They will also learn to demonstrate knowledge and understanding of citizenship concepts and issues, while applying knowledge and understanding of citizenship concepts to national and international actions.

Year 10 and 11

Our students will learn and apply citizenship knowledge and understanding to contribute to debates, show understanding of different viewpoints, make persuasive and reasoned arguments, and justify and substantiate their conclusions.

They will use and develop their knowledge of key citizenship issues and apply citizenship knowledge, understanding and skills in order to participate in responsible actions to address citizenship issues aimed at improving society and positively contribute to democracy and public life, as individuals and in collaboration with others.
