Humanities

The Humanities faculty at Kingsdale is an exciting place to learn. We have a large range of subjects and fantastically well qualified staff to support your childrens’ learning.  

Alongside academic achievement, there are a range of extracurricular clubs and trips that departments within Humanities offer to extend pupils’ learning outside the classroom. Most recently, there has been a History trip to Munich in December where pupils learnt about the significance of Dachau concentration camp for the Nazis in consolidating their power in 1930s. There was a Politics trip to the House of Commons where pupils were able to see real life examples of politics in action, and Sociology trips to The Old Bailey where students observed real life trials.  There have been a number of Geography trips including a GCSE controlled Assessment trips to Eastbourne and Stratford and a Key Stage 3 Residential 3 day trip to Northern Ireland to explore the dramatic physical Geography of the area. There are currently plans for Humanities trips to Iceland, Pevensey Castle and World War One Battle fields in 2018-19
