What is Modern Studies…?
Modern Studies is concerned with the study of local, national and international issues from a social, political and economic perspective.
So what does that mean…?
Basically we cover everything from Transport to Terrorism, Poverty to Prejudice, Rules to Racism, Ideologies to Independence Government to Gay Marriage.
Pupils studying Modern studies develop skills and knowledge that help them in their future whatever career path they choose to go down.
