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. Humanities is one of the highest performing faculties at GCSE and A level demonstrated by our 2016 exam results where the average Humanities department’s A*-C GCSE result was 83%.
Alongside academic achievement there are a range of extracurricular clubs and trips that Humanities departments offer. 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. Sixth form debating team reached the national finals of the Debating Matters competition.
