Human Cultures Faculty

Subjects:  Citizenship, Geography, History, RE, Sociology, Travel and Tourism

The Human Cultures Faculty is an extremely dedicated and experienced faculty, in which staff believe passionately in their subjects and in the development of the skills required to enable students to achieve well and grow as confident individuals. Our aim is to equip young people with the subject knowledge and skills for life.    

All Humanities students are encouraged to be the best that they can be and attain or exceed expected target levels in all subject areas. Therefore, students are encouraged to make full use of our faculty ‘open door’ policy of support when and where needed, as well as attendance to our weekly homework support sessions, GCSE workshops and revision groups.

In addition, to reinforce our classroom teaching to help bring Humanities subjects alive, we offer a variety  of trips ranging from the Tower of London, Imperial War museum, London to residential trips to Berlin and Krakow, and field trips to support controlled assessments.

As a team we hold consistent values and expectations of students and pride ourselves on the standard of work produced. We rigorously apply the highest criteria to meet the curriculum requirements set out in the National Curriculum for schools and our own Learning and Teaching Framework through the following subject content:

Year 7 and 8

Throughout all years, RE encourages students of all faiths, and none, to investigate the culture, beliefs and practice of people who follow a set religious way of life. We aim to clarify misconceptions without promoting one way of life over another. The majority of study in year seven considers the Christian faith. As a Church of England School we feel it is important that all pupils have a basic understanding of Christian theology. In year 8 RE lessons pupils focus mainly on the religions of Islam, Buddhism and Hinduism. In each topic pupils are given a basic introduction into the beliefs, practices and lifestyles of the followers of these religions. In year 9 we move away from the traditional study of religions and start to introduce the ethical and philosophical issues that will appear in the GCSE course.

In Geography, Year 7 students get the opportunity to explore the meaning behind Geography and develop their basic geographical skills.  Students are expected to have impeccable standards in their book work and take pride in everything they do. In Year 8 students are expected to enhance their geographical skills and become young aspiring geographers before commencing their GCSE study in year 9.

In KS3 History, students consider people, places and key turning points in, and across British History from 1066 to 1750. In years 8 students build on the skills introduced in y7, considering the periods 1750 to 1900, and 1900 to c1990, looking at Medieval Realms, the history of the United Kingdom, the American Civil Rights period, British/European history and conflict in the Modern World.

In Citizenship at KS3 students follow a programme delivered by experienced staff and supported by experts from outside agencies, covering issues that include PSHE and Citizenship.

Years 9, 10 and 11

In History, students study a three year, linear assessed course covering international relations, Germany, Crime and punishment and 20th Century Britain.

GCSE Geography is where young geographers become integrated and involved with global issues and topical events. Students study a variety of Physical and Human Geography topics.

The GCSE RE full course in Philosophy and Ethics includes topics such as Equality, Justice, Relationships, Science and Religion as well as others.
