The Humanities department is busy, innovative and full of enthusiastic geographers and historians (both students and staff). The department offers a practical, enquiry-based approach to learning by delivering a broad and exciting curriculum that stimulates students’ enthusiasm and helps to bring both history and geography to life.
A main aim of the department is to learn through hands-on experiences. Fieldwork and study visits are embedded in the curriculum to ensure that students are able to enhance their classroom knowledge. Visits to historical sites, workshops and guest speakers in the school all enrich our pupils' understanding of the world they live in.
This half term, pupils in Key Stage 3 will be focusing on the following geography and history topics:
Year 7: Sensational Safari and The Great Fire of London.
Year 8: The UK and The Romans.
Year 9: Settlements and Ancient Egypt.
