Humanities

The Humanities department incorporates the subjects of History, Geography and R.S. The combination of these 3 subjects means you will gain an understanding of people, the world they live in and their values. History looks at the things people have done in the past. We try to explain how and why they did those things. Geography looks at how people live in and use the environment around them in this country and abroad. Religious Studies looks at the variety of religious beliefs people have used to explain the world we live in. You will gain knowledge in Humanities as well as developing skills and opinions. Many of the topics are designed to help you form your own answers to problems that no one has yet solved.  In Humanities we always strive to make our lessons interesting using a variety of media (interactive white boards, lap tops, video clips, music, images etc.) We hope you enjoy working in Humanities.
