"Not only do teachers expand pupils' knowledge and understanding of what is covered in the lesson and beyond, but they also add to pupils' interest and enthusiasm."


    Humanities is the name given to History, Geography and RE, and forms a major part of our topic work each term. Each class focusses on three different topics over the year, covering History themes ranging from the Eqyptians to The Battle of Britain and aspects of Geography covering everything from the local area to Brazillian rainforests.
