Citizenship is the study of British society; how it functions legally, politically and economically. It looks at what pupils need to know to play a full part in society as active and responsible citizens and the moral dilemmas this can pose.
The Citizenship Studies GCSE course is an excellent introduction to current affairs, the UK legal system and UK Government institutions with a local, national and global perspective.
After GCSE, the Politics, Economics and Business A-level and IB Diploma courses offer ideal extensions of the subject post-16.
