Why Study General Studies?


In KS4 students will study the NEW General Studies as a weekly lesson beginning in Year 10 and taking the GCSE in Year 11. Within these lessons students will cover a variety of topics building on their learning from KS3 including:

  • Personal Finance
  • Relationships (including sex, contraception & STI’s)
  • World of Work (including letter of application, C.V and interview preparation)
  • Healthy Lifestyles
  • Risk (including alcohol & drugs)
  • Identity, Diversity, Democracy & Justice
  • Careers Education
  • Political and Economic
  • Artistic and Cultural
  • Social and Ethical
  • Scientific and Technological

GCSE General Studies provides a good introduction to citizenship and the broadening of the curriculum. The knowledge, understanding and skills raised in citizenship and PSHE lessons are consolidated and rewarded with a full GCSE qualification.
