The Humanities Department comprises of three distinct subject areas of Geography, History and Religious Education. Each subject is delivered, wherever possible, by specialist teachers. The Department collaborates and works very closely together in order to provide every student with a rewarding learning experience.
Humanities at NCHS provides pupils with an understanding of important topical issues relevant to everyday life – students not only develop critical analysis skills, but also learn to evaluate what they see in the world around them. Through the exploration of Humanities we learn how to think creatively and critically, to reason, and to ask questions. Students studying Humanities at NCHS have the opportunity to learn about and explore the cultural, economic, environmental, historical, moral, political, religious, social, spatial and spiritual dimensions of the human condition within individual, family, local, national and global contexts.
Humanities at NCHS are taught across both key stages and are a popular choice at key stage 4.
