Our Humanities Curriculum aims to inspire students to care passionately about the world around them, and to develop appreciation and understanding of the human and physical processes which help to shape it. We start our learning with personal experiences, in the present and at the local level, and then support and challenge students to have the confidence to develop curiosity about the wider world and different historical periods.
Opportunities to ask questions and find out about other places, beliefs and communities, both in terms of time and geography, allow every student to draw comparisons between their own life and locality, and the places and times that are studied. The topics studied promote wonder at the processes of the natural world and celebrate the achievements of diverse people who have had an impact on their society and our shared heritage. Through this learning, students are supported to consider themselves and their impact and value within the environment and communities they are a part of.
