The study of Humanities helps pupils understand their place in the world, through the study of core disciplines that will shape them for a lifetime of critical thinking.
Humanities subjects are at the forefront of an ever changing world and have a huge responsibility in preparing young people for life after school, therefore analysis, understanding and tolerance is at the heart of our curriculum. Improving pupils learning within Humanities will always be at the top of the agenda. Implementing a thorough programme of study and increasingly varied teaching styles combined with hard work and a positive outlook will continue to improve pupils learning. Regular out of hours learning opportunities are available as well as numerous educational visits both home and abroad.
All pupils are taught History, Geography and Religious Studies. GCSEs are offered in History, Geography and Religious Studies (long course) as optional subjects although every child is advised to study at least one humanities subject at GCSE level.
