HUMANITIES

Introduction

Humanities can be a wide range of subjects, but for the purpose of this site it is centred upon history and geography. They should inspire pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past and present. Teaching should equip pupils to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement.
