Welcome to the Humanities Faculty

Humanities expands our knowledge of human cultures and helps us understand what binds us together and what differentiates us from one another.

At Meadow High School the Humanities Department includes:

  • History
  • Geography
  • Religious Studies
  • RSE

The Humanities Department aims to promote an enjoyment of learning, where pupils are encouraged to become independent, multi-skilled learners. By studying the different subjects in Humanities we aim to encourage students to appreciate the world in which we live, to think about how the past has shaped the future, and examine their values and attitudes in today’s society.

Humanities modules are unique and original and pupils contributions are positively encouraged. We try to utilise special events and exhibitions whenever possible and maximise first hand and practical experiences using as many resources (objects, artefacts, people, places) as we can find. Each of our experiences relate to our topics and are all in line with schemes of work.

We aim to bring the topics we teach within Humanities to life so that it is an enjoyable learning experience for all. Learning about ourselves – through the various humanities – helps us to create a better world.
