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.
