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 Humanities departments offer. We are proud of the efforts of our sixth form debating team, who won the South London finals and qualified for the national finals of the prestigious ‘Debating Matters’ competition. Last year there were a number of extracurricular trips to extend pupils’ learning outside the classroom. There was a Key stage 4 and 5 trip to Athens in Greece where pupils explored the physical Geography and Historical background. There was a Politics trip to the House of Commons where pupils were able to see real life examples of politics in action. There have been a number of Geography trips including a GCSE controlled assessment trip to Stratford and local Key Stage 3 trips to the Natural History Museum. There are currently plans for Humanities trips to Lisbon and the Battlefields for 2017 taking place too.
