The citizenship GCSE provides students with detailed knowledge about the UK constitution so that they can become informed, active and responsible citizens. Students will explore the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, UK politics, UK law and the role of the media. Students will also learn about a variety of international organisations and the links they have with the UK, they will study what is meant by active citizenship and carry out a citizenship campaign of their choosing. Students will be assed via two externally set exams, which will include the requirement to evaluate their citizenship campaign.
