The arts and humanities teach us who we are and what we can be. They lie at the very core of the culture of which we’re a part.

– Ronald Reagan

In Humanities lessons pupils will be finding out about the activities, achievements and beliefs of people in the past and in the present.

Humanities is one way of helping you understand the world in which we live because it is concerned with people in different times and in different places.

In Key Stage 3 pupils study Humanities, which incorporates the fields of Geography, History and RE. They follow topics based on the National Curriculum, with an emphasis of plugging the gaps in their knowledge and skills. This ensures that upon returning to mainstream school they are not disadvantaged from their peers.
