Taking an interdisciplinary approach to the modern world is becoming increasingly important. Politics, International Studies, Liberal Arts and Modern Languages may be separate subject fields, but they have a shared instinct for helping students to know more about their social world and how they might want to shape it. Each subject area has a critical and questioning approach to the social status quo and they present students with the tools to challenge social assumptions, particularly the assumption that the world must always look as it does now. Students on this stream will be provided with academic content that will take them significantly beyond their school curriculum. We aim to provide an integrated, all-round learning experience, using the theme of ‘Colonial Hangover’ to pose a series of questions about everyday life that currently remains underrepresented in the A-level syllabus. Students will be asked to think about how their lives intersect on a day-to-day basis with the legacies of Empire, and how past and present go together in the lives that they are trying to create for themselves.
