Humanities & Modern Foreign Languages: Head of Department Mr A Izycky
The Humanities and MFL department is an essential component of a broad and balanced education. It is the place where pupils widen their experience and understanding of the natural and human world. We regard the core purpose of the curriculum to be to broaden minds and develop personal character through the study of its distinctive subject areas: History, Geography, Religious Studies, Politics and Modern Foreign Languages. Our approach is guided by some key principles:
- Children should be introduced to a body of knowledge that represents ‘the best that has been thought and said’. Curriculum time is precious; our teachers can justify the worth of every lesson from a knowledge perspective.
- Achievement for all: We exemplify this by embedding appropriate support and challenge across all year-groups and pathways. We meet the needs of all learners through developing subject-specific skills and providing real breadth of content. We encourage pupils of all abilities to study our subjects at KS4 and KS5.
- Progression: Curriculum design prepares pupils by equipping them with the knowledge and skills required to take their studies onto the next stage.
