Curriculum enrichment outside of the classroom
The Politics Department wholeheartedly encourage engagement with the subject outside of the classroom and facilitate this through a range of extra-curricular visits and experiences including the Year 13 New York and Washington visit, and a visit to Parliament and the Supreme Court.
The department also runs a weekly Politics Society for all year groups that discusses and debates a wide range of political issues far beyond the curriculum, and a weekly Politics Documentary Club for Years 11, 12 and 13.
