Citizenship is about encouraging a sense of social responsibility, community involvement and political understanding.  It provides pupils with the knowledge, skills and understanding to play an effective role in public life.  The department hopes to promote community cohesion by helping our students to respect people's differences, whilst also promoting shared values.  Citizenship allows our pupils to become better informed young citizens; as they get an opportunity to explore aspects of Rights, Responsibilities, the Legal System, Politics, the Media as well as contemporary global issues such as Fair Trade and Sustainable Development.
