Humanities at The Bemrose School
Within the Humanities faculty at The Bemrose School we aim to deliver a diverse curriculum which inspires our pupils to question the world in which they live and their place within it, in the past, present and future. The curriculum we have designed aims to expose pupils to as many places, cultures and histories in the world to broaden their understanding of it whilst also appreciating the multicultural society in which they live.
The Humanities faculty at The Bemrose School incorporates the subjects of History, Geography and Religious Education from Year 7 through to Year 11. Additionally, pupils have the opportunity to study Sociology at Key Stage 4 and 5.
Through the lessons we deliver to pupils we aim to provide pupils with the skill set to become empathetic, accountable, global citizens who can see beyond their immediate experiences to critically analyse and evaluate the world in which they live. It is through the study of a wide range of environmental, social, political and cultural issues that are relevant to everyday life that we aim to equip pupils with an understanding of the world and its interdependent nature. Pupils have the opportunity to hold philosophical and ethical discussions about these topics whilst also discovering and evaluating solutions within their Humanities lessons to help develop their knowledge and understanding of the world.
