In the Humanities faculty, our over-arching aim is to nurture world class learners, who have an intrinsic understanding of the world around them: how humanity has developed over time, our position in the world, and the universe, now, and where we are heading in the future. The faculty aims to encourage learners with this vision through the study of Geography, History and RE.
Humanities fires learners’ curiosity to ask questions about the wider world in which we live. This not only helps them to make sense of the new knowledge they acquire, but also helps learners to understand the process of change, to see how we arrived ‘here’ and where we may be heading to. The unique concepts in Humanities allow learners to construct arguments, analyse evidence and to question human motivation with skill and confidence.
Furthermore, we aim to encourage learners to develop a range of humanitarian skills and qualities such as being culturally aware, empathetic, compassionate and community-spirited. We urge learners to become global citizens by embracing social awareness and responsibility, and ultimately to understand the human race.
