About

I am Teacher-in-Charge of Politics at a Secondary School in Hampshire. I have been teaching Politics for four years, having trained as a History Teacher.

I set up this website for two reasons:

  1. Four years ago I was a new politics teacher, with no significant background in the subject. I know how hard this can be – with many Politics Teachers coming into the subject from other subject specialties. I wanted to do something to share resources and ideas and this was the idea that came to mind.
  2. As a Politics Teacher I am always keen for my students to engage with contemporary politics. The blog completed on this page aims to help students to do this, with contemporary stories linked to the A-Level Specifications.

I really hope whether you are a student or a teacher of Politics that you find this website useful. Please do click on the comment section if you have any questions or issues with the site.
