Citizenship - Key Stage 4

At KS4, pupils can opt to complete the Edexcel Citizenship Studies GCSE course. This broadly focuses on rights, responsibilities, politics and the media. The course also includes a project to promote active Citizenship which pupils then write about in their second exam.

In addition, we cover key PSHE elements including drugs and alcohol education, mental health and sex and relationships education. This is part of the core lesson arrangement where pupils in years 10 and 11 have one lesson of Citizenship per fortnight for half of the year.
