Government & Politics

We at Kingsdale have a great and accidental advantage over other available courses. Whilst many schools and colleges have devoted their teaching to United State's politics over the years, we have maintained our expertise in that area whilst also offering Ideologies. This means that in the new A-Level, where teaching Ideologies is compulsory, we have a well established team who are already comfortable in doing so.

Our team are passionate about Politics and are proud to teach the fascinating new A-Level, on the grounds that if you study politics, you are probably interested in the intellectual grounds of political belief. Further, we cannot ignore the relevance of US Politics in the world and so are happy to welcome that subject back to our curriculum.

The value of A Level Government and Politics

Studying Government and Politics is for those who wish to have a deeper understanding of the political structures of the country we live in. It naturally follows that those who have the knowledge that Government and Politics gives are more comfortable with the complexities of the state they live in, and the world they inhabit. However, it is instrumentally useful in other subjects too, not least History and Sociology where knowledge of political structures and theories are needed.
