Our students have the opportunity to study a range of academic subjects at Key Stages 3, 4 and 5, in addition to extra opportunities within and outside of the school day. At KS3 the faculty consists of the Geography, History and Religious Studies departments, with GCSEs in each of these subjects offered at KS4. Whilst Religious Studies is compulsory for all students, all other Humanities subjects are optional; History and Geography being consistently popular choices with our students.
Post-16 optional subjects within the Faculty include History, Geography, Religious Studies, Psychology, Sociology, Criminology and Law. All Humanities subjects are taught by subject specialists and several faculty colleagues are involved in mentoring students who choose to complete the Extended Project Qualification in a field of study linked to their specialism.
All subject areas within the faculty make a significant contribution to the school’s strong PSHEE & Citizenship programme and to a number of extra-curricular activities. The Humanities Faculty has a very successful record of providing students with enhancement opportunities and in the last five years, faculty staff have arranged trips to destinations as far afield as France, Belgium, Germany, Poland, Iceland and Indonesia.
