This department is part of the Humanities and Social Sciences Faculty.
The Humanities and Social Sciences Vision
The vision of the Humanities faculty is to create independent, critical thinkers with a passion for our subjects.
This will enable students to:
- Explain and analyse objectively
- Think independently and reflect on the modern world, the people within it and how it has changed, is changing and will continue to change in the future.
- Research and evaluate sources and communicate creatively their findings
In an atmosphere where open debate is encouraged, we aim to deliver varied, creative and inspiring lessons. All students will be supported in their learning to achieve to the best of their ability, being given opportunities to use and share their talents.
We aim to give students a strong grounding by developing skills necessary for their later studies and employment, but also to develop our students into mature and understanding people through the topics we explore.
The Geography Vision
The Geography department aims to excite students about our dynamic and ever-changing world. Our objective is for students to understand their place and to appreciate difference. Alongside this we want students to develop key geographical skills, as well as improve their knowledge and understanding of a range of environments. Students learn to question topical issues and consider how humans interact with and manage the environment. The department works together to engage students by incorporating creative activities, team work and current affairs into our lessons.
