The Humanities department is built on effective communication, honesty, and expertise. An enriching curriculum is on offer, with extensive opportunities to learn in and out of the classroom, with amazing trips to Iceland and the Norfolk Coast open to students in the different Key Stages. It is a place of inspiration, enthusiasm, and stimulation for learners; where a culture of challenge is found, in order to prepare our learners for life beyond education. Learners are expected to contribute to every lesson, exploring the learning journey, and becoming inquisitive about the world around them.

Learners are given the opportunity to form links with other core subjects on campus, drawing together numeracy and literacy skills, while applying them to the real world. Our students are well-prepared for Post 16 study, with popular subjects like Psychology and Sociology being offered to students that they will not have studied before.

Blended learning:

In Humanities every taught lesson in school will have resources placed into the Google Classroom, these can be used for students isolating at home, or for revision purposes. The lessons uploaded will include a range of activities, suitable for completing at home on laptops/tablets/phones.

All students will have been invited to Google Classrooms specific for their class. There might be some subtle differences in the work set between classes, in order to meet the needs of the individual students. All students will be set homework through the Google Classroom, as part of the 20:20:20 agenda.

In the event of a bubble/year group closure, students in KS3 will be invited to a whole year Google Classroom. This is managed by one teacher, which might not be the student’s normal teacher. This is to ensure that all students get the same home learning experiences. Students will also find a link to this Google Classroom in their normal Classroom.

Where possible, ‘live’ lessons via Google Meet will be conducted. This is a fantastic way to stay in touch with our classes, and give them superb educational experiences remotely. The teacher will inform the students of these live lessons through the Google Classroom.

Students may be expected to hand in work, we do not expect students to print out work, instead this can be completed electronically and handed in through the Google Classroom, or completed on paper with a photo of the work handed in. Any student without access to the internet will be sent paper copies of work home.
