We aim to provide the students at Wigston Academy with a topical, challenging curriculum designed to equip them with an understanding of local, national & international issues, which shape their lives now and in the future. We want our students to; • Develop an understanding of the awe and wonder of the world, to enable them to understand how people are living and changing where they live, for the better and worse. • Understand what it means to live in a globalised world. • Develop a strong sense of social and environmental responsibility. • Be inquisitive and develop the skills of working independently and collaboratively to be able to carry out research, analysis and presentation of information in a variety of forms. • Leave in Year 9 with a lifelong interest in the world and global issues. Students receive four hours a fortnight and one homework. Programme of study for 2019-2020 is below, amendments will be made for 2020-2021 onwards.
