Students study History, R.E. and Geography as separate subjects at both Key Stages.
Increasingly we adopt an enquiry based approach to learning and compliment class based work with field visits and trips locally. Geography is unique in bridging the social sciences (human geography) with the natural sciences (physical geography). Human geography concerns the understanding of the dynamics of cultures, societies and economies, and physical geography concerns the understanding of the dynamics of physical landscapes and the environment.
Students are expected to gain knowledge and understanding so that they may form opinions and actively engage in the issues of today. Moral and ethical issues are studied from an historical and contemporary perspective. A wide range of medical, social and environmental issues are covered including the development of medical treatments and contemporary ethical issues that arise; social issues such as community cohesion, the family, political responsibility, conflict and environmental concerns. All three subjects have valuable lessons in preparing our students for the challenges of tomorrow.
