Curriculum intent

The Citizenship department believe that by studying citizenship it will give students the knowledge and skills to understand, challenge and engage with democratic society including politics, the media, civil society, the economy and the law.

Democracies need active, informed and responsible citizens - citizens who are willing and able to take responsibility for themselves and their communities and contribute to the political process. The citizenship curriculum is designed to help our students develop self-confidence and a sense of agency, and successfully deal with life changes and challenges such as bullying and discrimination.  

Citizenship will also give students a voice: in the life of the Academy, their communities and society at large. It enables them to make a positive contribution by developing the knowledge and experience needed to claim their rights and understand their responsibilities. It prepares them for the challenges and opportunities of adult and working life.


Students are taught one 80-minute lesson per week in Year 9 and one 120-minute lesson in Year 10 to allow students to dive deeply into the subject of citizenship. The Citizenship curriculum will be implemented in the following ways:

Balanced: The curriculum explores all aspects of citizenship, it develops British Values and all other concepts mentioned in the national curriculum to an excellent depth. It requires students to apply real life to theoretical concepts.

Rigorous: Students are continually pushed with relevant examples and links to real life to help them achieve the highest marks. Exam questions are conceptually challenging.

Coherent: The curriculum is determined by Edexcel, it is designed in such a way that Themes develop upon one another. I have made clear links on slides to show how topics link to one another. The scheme culminates in the use of knowledge and skills in an applied active citizenship project.

Vertically integrated: The scheme is devised to ensure that aspects of each theme are revisited and built upon to help encourage progression. Slide links have been inserted to help students see how each theme links to another.

Appropriate: The curriculum is determined by the exam board – there are clear links to British Values throughout the course. 

Focused: The big ideas of the subject are generated from the theme titles. The idea of power, democracy, rights and making a difference run throughout each theme.

Relevant: Students will use weekly news reflections to ensure that their learning is relevant and up to date, these reflections are embedded into their work booklets.


Upon studying Citizenship, we aim to ensure that our students become informed and active citizens. They are willing to engage in their local community and know how to use their passions in a meaningful way, they are encouraged to do this via the completion of an active citizenship project during the latter part of their GCSE Citizenship course.

Students will be able to explore a range of opinions on current affairs via the use of their news diaries and during class discussions about the news. The impact of this subject will be evidenced via the active participation of students in issues that affect them such as climate change or knife crime. Students will have informed opinions and gain an understanding of communities, politics, the law and agents of power including local, national and global power structures.
