Our History lessons encourage students to develop knowledge of particular key events, periods and societies. They study topics and themes from their local context as well as general British and world history, helping them discover the relevance of the past to an understanding of the present. Students will also have the opportunity to go on a number of field trips through the year.
Our Geography lessons encourage students to ‘think like geographers’ by developing an enquiry approach to contemporary topics of study. This qualification integrates fieldwork and geographical skills into the content and assessments giving a holistic approach to the subject. Field trips and the opportunity to study geography in the wider context is an element of the course that is enjoyed by all involved.
GCSE Art and Design is suitable for students with an interest in drawing and painting who are willing to be creative. Students are encouraged to be experimental, to work from observation and imagination, and to develop their ideas from the beginning to the end.
