A Level Politics

Edexcel 8PLO (01, 02) & 9PLO (01, 02, 03)

There has perhaps never been a more exciting time to study politics and the new A Level syllabus reflects the truly modern and evolving political environment in the U.K. and around the world.  AS students will study U.K. politics and government which will give them a set of core knowledge and understanding of politics.  Students will then go onto develop this knowledge at A2 with a comparison study between the U.K. and America and also study Conservative, Liberal and Socialist ideologies.  An interest in current affairs and society is a must along with the ability to debate ideas from different viewpoints.

A number of degree courses, careers in media, teaching, politics, journalism, the police and market research.
