The History, Geography and RS subjects have in common the aim to open our students’ eyes to the world around them. We encourage and develop skills that promote discussion, enquiry, argument and analysis and cover a wide spectrum of world wide and current issues. Students are set into ability groups from year 8 and regular assessment and feedback ensure we can give students immediate and effective support throughout their academic year.
