Yes! You can study a different ideology for fun if you want to. But this won't come up in your exam; your school/college usually chooses the exam board and the content in advance.

When studying A Level Politics, you'll study Conservatism, Liberalism and Socialism. Along with that, you'll study one of anarchism, multiculturalism, nationalism, feminism and ecologism. While you'll only be examined on one of these five, there's nothing to stop you looking at any of the others if you're interested.

If you want to study other ideologies in your spare time, I'd recommend 'Political Ideologies: An Introduction' by Andrew Heywood, which includes chapters on Islamism and Fascism.
