Citizenship lessons at Enfield Grammar School encourage students to understand how to become active Citizens of Enfield, the UK and world. Topics include a study of the society we live in, an understanding of British values, the workings of the UK political system and the legal structure of the UK. We delve into issues surrounding democracy, the rule of law, multiculturalism, individual liberty and equality.

Skills taught include how to create an effective campaign, debating skills and presentation skills. Written essays are evaluative and teach students how to communicate an argument coherently and critically.

Throughout the year, we also pause teaching the citizenship curriculum and focus on Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE). PSHE education is a school subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to manage their lives, now and in the future. These skills and attributes help pupils to stay healthy, safe and prepare them for life and work in modern Britain.

The Department has consistently produced excellent results at GCSE and is a popular choice for boys when picking their GCSEs. A variety of field trips are offered, and trips to Parliament and the Supreme Court have been particularly popular in the past.
