Humanities

We strongly believe that the humanities' subjects are of central importance to understanding the world and our place in it. Humanities is about people and their interaction with their environment, in its historical, geographical, cultural, social, moral and spiritual dimensions. We aim for our children to develop an open-mindedness towards other people and cultures, as well as a sense of responsibility to the world around them. This comes primarily through the range of topics taught to the various year groups.

We believe the humanities subjects have the power to develop many skills which are vital in the modern world. They are uniquely crucial to the well-being of our local community, as well as the global population as a whole; only with an understanding of our environments, climate, religious beliefs and historical roots, can we advance in a sustainable, peaceful and successful manner.

The humanities subjects provide exciting contexts for learning and equip children to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments and develop perspective and judgement.
