Humanities

For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, that through endurance and through the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope Romans 15:4

Curriculum Intent Statement

The Humanities syllabus and course content will be incredibly ambitious in the breadth and detail of knowledge included and will create determined individuals who are ready to tackle a depth and range of knowledge and skills that will lead to compassionate and respectful individuals who are willing to display the service required in order to tackle and excel within a demanding and challenging department. Students will be made explicit the links between content and prospective forms of employment. Students will acquire skills that align with independent thought and inquisitive minds that stands them in good stead to succeed and thrive in the world of work. Each student will be pushed to find identity, meaning, and purpose in life through connections to the community, to the natural world, and to spiritual values such as compassion and peace through content. Students will be taught to look at evidence from a range of different viewpoints and a range of skills such as usefulness, accuracy, purpose and reliability will provide pupils with an analytical eye to form independent lines of enquiry and to think critically. Pupils will be taught in depth about the physical and natural world, about human processes and choices that affect the world and how decisions can massively impact on the world and community both positively and negatively. Pupils will be taught morals and ethics through course content to enable pupils to affectively engage with the wider world in a constructive and informed manner
