Our Humanities Faculty covers a wide range of topics, developing students’ knowledge and understanding of people, place and the environment, from geographical, historical, religious and cultural perspectives.
Key Stage 3
In Year 7 students follow our humanities course which is designed to develop their understanding of their community through investigating and questioning the importance of the physical and human landscapes, and how and why they have changed over time.
The skills developed across all four humanities subjects; citizenship, geography, history and religious studies are transferable across all subjects. Students will learn to research, critically assess and question ideas, whilst developing as responsible citizens who will leave us and really make a positive difference.
In Year 8 and Year 9 students will study the four subjects separately; citizenship, geography, history and religious studies. The GCSE course in religious studies starts in Year 9.
Key Stage 4
Students choose to study either geography or history at GCSE level and also have the option to study both.
Students will continue to study for their GCSE religious studies.
Key Stage 5
The Humanities Faculty currently offers A level courses in history and geography.
