An inclusive community committed to excellence in personalised learning and well being

Humanities

Under the umbrella of Humanities we consider the teaching of History, Geography and Religious Education and how an understanding of these helps our young people gain a better sense of self and sense of their place in the world.

Each area is taught in a multisensory way engaging the least able and where possible real contexts are used such as visits to religious buildings, exploration of farms or rivers, re-enactments of historical events.

Again some older students achieve accreditation in these subjects. The thematic approach to teaching enables staff to plan a broad programme of enrichment which is varied and exciting.

Community links are especially relevant when teaching Humanities and many well-established relationships with community organisations have developed over time.
