Humanities

In Humanities, pupils learn through doing: lessons are always active and enquiry based with pupils asking/answering questions to elicit deeper understanding and to develop problem-solving skills. Besides, the lessons stimulate an interest in and a sense of wonder about places. It helps young people make sense of a complex and dynamically changing world.

History

Key Stage 3

Lessons include activities such as research, role-play/hot-seating, debates, art and design and creative writing for example poetry and stories. Pupils work in groups to develop key group work skills, but will also have the chance to work independently. 

Students develop a variety of cross-curricular skills including analysis/interpretation, questioning, speaking and writing for persuasion. Topics follow the National Curriculum and will be varied, relevant and exciting.

IGSCE and A Level

The History syllabus offers students the opportunity to study some of the major international issues in the 19th and 20th centuries, as well as looking in greater depth at the history of a particular region or regions.

Taking IGCSE History is as much about acquiring historical and transferable skills as it is about acquiring knowledge. Students will gain valuable skills including an understanding about the past and an understanding of historical concepts such as cause and consequence. They will form an appreciation of historical evidence and how to use it, and how to present clear and logical arguments. 

History compliments a number of subjects including English, Geography and Economics. It will also broaden the outlook of students intending to study the Sciences or Law at A level or as a degree. A traditional subject, History is valued by universities and employers around the world.

Geography

 

Geography explains where places are, how places and landscapes are formed, how people and their environment interact, and how a diverse range of economies, societies and environments are interconnected. It builds on pupils’ own experiences to investigate places at all scales, from the personal to the global. 

Pupils will learn that Geography extends far beyond the classroom, homework and field-trips will provide an invaluable extension of learning. In the classroom they will do a variety of activities including questioning, data-gathering and analysis, presentations, extended writing and designing/modeling. There will be plenty of opportunities for individual learning and research as well as group work.

Key Stage 3 topics cover Physical, Environmental and Human Geography and include:

  • Mapping Skills
  • Weather
  • Climate Change and Resources
  • Earthquakes
  • Rainforests
  • Development
