A humanities curriculum is central to students becoming ethical, informed citizens of the immediate community, their country and the world.
Throughout the curriculum, students will develop respect and open-mindedness to reflect on what is both familiar and different.
Humanities further develop students curiosity, developing students’ concepts of place and space in order to support their understanding of where they are in the world. It increases students’ knowledge of equality and what difficulties other people have faced over time and unfortunately continue to face.
Humanities offer students further opportunities to explore communication and how conflict and challenge have shaped some of the world’s history. It will also offer opportunities to see how collaboration and connections between countries across the world have developed change.
Some students will develop their knowledge further exploring concepts of governance, economy, power, leadership, diversity, culture, ethnicity, equality and inequality, justice, rights, conquest, social, political and economic ideologies, social organisation and structures, trade, agriculture and industry, power and protest, peace, conflict and cooperation, revolution, devolution and empire.
Most importantly, Humanities will offer students the opportunity to become more self-aware of the impact their actions have on the community and wider world.
Although Geography and History are not taught as discrete lessons, the learning concepts that both of these subjects offer are embedded within each curriculum. This enables us to inspire in students a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives.
The thematic curricula will offer students opportunities to undertake investigations and enquiries, comparing, interpreting and analysing different types of evidence, facts and drawing their own conclusions in search of truth.
