There are no GCSE or A-Level examinations in Citizenship, but students are assessed on a range of criteria from independent inquiry and creative thinking to self-management and working as a team.

Citizenship is very well regarded by both staff and students across the school and has been expanded and rewritten to include new external agency involvement and a focus on increasing student literacy and numeracy.
