"Studying Government and Politics at Coombe Sixth Form has been an amazing experience. The lessons involve structured debates that allow everyone to get involved and voice their own opinion. The course gives you a reall insight into how the world is run and the teachers provide a supportive environment.
It's the perfect preparation for a Law degree at University and hopefully a career as a barrister."

'Studying Politics is probably more exciting than it has ever been. We are in the process of massive political change in the UK and the USA. It enables you to have informed opinions and to develop your knowledge of the wider world. Politics gives you the skills to both to discuss and write argumentatively and complements a range of humanities subjects.'
