Citizenship

Citizenship teaches the knowledge and skills which are required to understand and engage with British democracy, politics and the law.  One of the key values we hope to impart is that of tolerance for others, regardless of race, gender, age, mental or physical disability, socio-economic or cultural background.  British and global cultures are studied as part of this component, with the aim of enriching the boys and supporting their development into well-rounded individuals.
