Politics

We believe that through the study of politics at Mascalls, our students will develop important democratic values that will allow them to scrutinise, question and evaluate the world around them.

We provide students with a foundational understanding of key political terms and concepts, so that they may be able to explore and reflect upon their own thoughts and opinions in a more measured way. Students will study an array of ideological perspectives; through which they will begin to understand how mainstream political narratives of the day can shape the policies that dictate their everyday lives in the UK and abroad.

The curriculum will encourage politics students to be keen and critical observers of the news agenda, to partake in political debates with confidence, and to consider how they may play a role in solving some of the world’s largest problems of the future.
