In Humanities, we offer students a full and well balanced academic curriculum, which supports the aspirations of students and provides ideal preparation for GCSE and A level work.

Supporting your Child

Parents/carers can support students by keeping them up to date with the latest news either through newspapers, internet or library visits.  Debate and discussion with specific topics increases their ability to further their knowledge in this subject.
