Humanities

The study of Humanities encompasses History, Geography, Ethics & Philosophy, Citizenship, Social Sciences, Business Studies, Health and Social Care and Leisure and Tourism. We have extremely passionate subject specific specialists teaching in all of these subjects at GCSE and A Level. In lessons students will learn to study evidence, analyse data, evaluate different interpretations, weigh up different points of view and argue their own opinion. In lessons a variety of strategies are used to develop learning. Debate, discussion, essay/report writing, delivering presentations, project work, pair/group work, individual research and fieldwork to name but a few. Assessment comes in a variety of forms.

Key Stage 3

In key stage 3 students have 3 Humanities lessons per week in mixed ability classes. Over the academic year they will spend 10 weeks looking at Citizenship, Ethics and Philosophy, Geography and History. In each subject they will be set one homework project and will complete assessments in lessons.
