Humanities

Introduction to Prospective Students

 

The Humanities Faculty, which encompasses Geography and History is situated in the main school block where there are 5 specialist classrooms situated on the D staircases.

All the classrooms have projectors, and four rooms have interactive whiteboards. Visualisers are also available for use in History and Geography.

Key Stage 3 (Years 7 and 8)

At Key Stage 3 all students study History and Geography aimed at providing all students with the skills and confidence required to study either at Key Stage 4.

Key Stage 4 (Years 9, 10 and 11)

At Key Stage 4 we offer both GCSE History and Geography.

Key Stage 5 (Post-16)

For post 16 students we offer A-Level courses in History and Geography.

Exam courses offered in Humanities have been very popular options for many years. We have a proud record of exam success. The human and physical resources available have enabled us to lead the field in the drive to improve learning and teaching. Curriculum enhancement has been provided in the form of visits to World War 1 Battle Sites, Concentration Camps, Berlin and historic London. In Geography pupils are involved in a number of field trips, some in the immediate area and further afield to Carding Mill Valley.
