Modern Studies is an exciting subject which informs pupils about the social, political and international issues within the UK and the world. In Modern Studies we encourage our pupils to become more responsible, informed and confident young people who have a vast knowledge of social and political events throughout the UK and the world.      

Modern Studies is very varied and interesting offering all pupils an insight to the society they live in and encourages a tolerance and empathy for alternative ideologies and circumstances. We use a range of teaching methods to promote learning which include written reports, presentations, role plays and other wide ranging techniques.
