Government & Politics
Ms J E Hancock BA Head of Government and Politics.
Government and Politics Course:
Politics is about power and ideas and it determines the public life of society. The study of politics at ‘A’ level gives the student the opportunity to inform themselves of contemporary political events, issues and changes in the political system.
In the course of their studies, students will use newspapers, weekly news journals, news and current affairs programmes and relevant text books. They will become familiar with political
concepts, their application and the historical context in which decisions are made, through studying selected aspects of the government and politics of the UK and the USA.
