Department Introduction:

The Citizenship department offers students the opportunity to develop their knowledge of local, national and global issues throughout key stages 3 – 5.

At key stage 3 students study Citizenship throughout discrete lessons as well as being supplemented through the Academy Applied Learning Days. During Key Stage 3 students study topics such as Human Right, Parliament, International issues and the Media.
In year 10 students can opt to take Citizenship for GCSE which comprises two exams and two pieces of controlled assessment. As part of controlled assessment learners research and participate in an active citizenship activity which develops their skills of participation and responsible action.

At The Totteridge Academy we also offer A level Citizenship which is an excellent subject for students interested in future careers in Law, Politics or Social work. The A level course is entirely examination based and made up of four different topic areas and is recognised by UCAS and all University institutions.

The Citizenship department prides itself of providing a broad range of extracurricular activities on offer which include The Citizenship Foundation mock Trial Competition, visits to Parliament along with the BBC centre and Clink prison museum. This enables all learners to see and understand the relevance of this contemporary subject to their everyday lives.
