Humanities is designed to combine elements from History, Geography, and  Religious Education, whilst maximising opportunities to develop other valuable cross-curricular skills. It allows them to be taught in such a way that links and connections are evident, thereby enabling pupils to develop a more rounded understanding of the world we live in, but also promoting a more interdisciplinary approach both amongst staff and pupils alike.  Careful attention is paid to ensure that all requirements of the National Curriculum are adhered to.

Pupils in Year 5 are taught largely by their form tutors, and as they move up into Year 6 greater focus is placed on developing links between the Humanities curriculum and literacy skills. All three Humanities subjects are investigated throughout both years, placing them in good stead for more specialist teaching at KS3.
