The Humanities Subject Area is responsible for teaching three subjects – History, Geography and Philosophy, Religion and Ethics.  In Year 7, students have five one hour lessons per fortnight, all taught by the same Humanities teacher.  This allows each student to get used to his/her Humanities teacher and allows us to draw important links between the three Humanities subjects.  The following themes are explored during Year 7:

Terms 1 and 2History – Skills in History; The Middle Ages
Terms 3 and 4 – PRE – World Religions; Islam; Hinduism
Term 5 and 6 –  Geography – The UK: Who We Are; Earth Pole to Pole; Africa

There is also a Year 7 Humanities Trip to the Big Pit

At Key Stage 4, the students will be able to study Geography, History, or Philosophy, Religion and Ethics all of which lead to a GCSE qualification.  In PRE, students begin their GCSE course early and gain their GCSE qualification in Year 10.  Some students study two or even three Humanities subjects at GCSE.

AS/A Level courses provided, within the Cabot Federation, are Geography, History, Philosophy, Religion and Ethics and World Development.
