Citizenship allows students to learn about and immerse themselves in key issues and gain an understanding of what it means to be a UK citizen and how the key institutions of the United Kingdom operate.

Throughout the course they will study their rights, the law and the UK legal system as well as the political system, how the UK interacts on the global stage and how they can lead citizenship action. Not only will students gain a detailed understanding of these topics but they will develop key skills including their ability to debate, analyse information and make informed and justified judgements as they also become informed citizens ready to participate fully in the democratic system.
