Teacher in charge:

Mrs J Lander

We do not specify any preconditions for entry but a general interest in current affairs helps put issues in context and also encourages students to research the subject through the mass media away from the classroom.

We try to incorporate a field trip to Parliament Buildings, Stormont, where in the past year our Senior School pupils had the opportunity to meet and question representatives from most of the main political parties.

Qualifications Offered:

GCSE Government and Politics (CCEA Specification)

GCE Advanced Subsidiary (AS) and GCE Advanced (A2) Government and Politics (CCEA Specification)
