Teaching humanities across the whole school enables the children to understand others through history, languages and cultures, thereby fostering social justice and equality.
The wide variety of topics, reveal how people, such as Louis Braille and Neil Armstrong, have tried to make moral, spiritual and intellectual sense of the world through hard work and determination. Children are taught to question the world around them through a wide variety of topics. These topics teach us empathy, whilst also allowing the children to analyse critically and logically with subjective, complex information leading to fascinating debates.
The cross curricular lessons, enhanced by School trips and residentials, encourage children to think creatively whilst also teaching them to use reason and logic to ask and answer questions about our world. These lessons develop informed, empathetic, compassionate and democratic citizens who are ready to flourish in the wider world.
