The Humanities Department aims to cultivate the joy of discovery. Through our teaching of history, geography and Religious Education we delve into the past, the present and the future; we travel around the world from our classrooms; and we take the students to unknown places; we explore the world’s most important ideas.
Whilst promoting a thorough academic study of the subjects in the classroom, we also encourage the students to broaden their understanding with overseas trips – recent expeditions have included Iceland, Berlin, and fieldwork in the local area.
