Humanities

Director of Learning - Miss S O'Loughlin Email

The Humanities Team includes many different curriculum subject areas.  We are dedicated to the promotion, enjoyment and excellence of our subjects through exciting and enthusiastic teaching. 

 At Key Stage 3 students receive six hours of Humanities lessons every timetable cycle involving the individual study of History and Geography.  We pride ourselves on creative teaching which appeals to all types of learners. 

At Key Stage 4 students can opt to study History, Geography or Business GCSE or BTEC Tech Award in Enterprise.  The majority of students choose to maintain their Humanities education.  Our results are excellent and we aim to maximise the potential of all our students. 

At Key Stage 5, students can opt to study History, Geography, Business, Economics and Sociology to A level or BTEC Extended Certificate in Business.  The numbers opting for these subjects are very high.

Many students choose to continue their academic studies in Humanities subjects onto Further/ Higher Education.
