The Politics Department teaches A Level Government & Politics to the Sixth Form in the Senior School. Miss Melanie Dunn is the Head of Department and has been in post since September 2014, based in Room 84 in the Main Building. One other teacher assists with the teaching of the subject. The curriculum studied focuses on the Edexcel specification, covering British politics in Year 12 and American politics in the Year 13. There is a very popular bi-annual trip to New York and Washington DC and the department also offers occasional trips to Parliament and arranges visiting speakers. A politics society operates for the Sixth Form and there is a current affairs club for younger pupils.
