Humanities is committed to ensuring that students of all backgrounds are equipped to become

global citizens who are keenly aware of their place in history, the world and culture.

Students will be taught to think critically and use literacy and oracy to effectively articulate their understanding of religion, culture, history and geography. With these tools students will have a far greater chance of contributing positively to society and the world.

History at KS3

Students are taught to understand historical concepts such as continuity and change, cause and consequence, similarity, difference and significance and use them to make connections, draw contrasts, analyse trends, frame historically-valid questions and create their own structured accounts, including written narratives and analyses. This is achieved by studying British and world history from the middle ages up to modern day.
