 What do Pupils do in Modern Studies?

In Modern Studies pupils will examine the world from a political and social and economic perspective.  Pupils will be encouraged to develop their own interests and to look at issues from different points of view.  Pupils will be encouraged to think, contribute and show respect and tolerance.  Pupils will use a variety of different sources, the most up to date text books, the latest technology including iPads, and will develop their research/presentational skills.  Pupils will be challenged in their learning and will enjoy their studies in a vibrant department.
