In the faculty of Social Sciences we have the ambition for all our students to engage in and achieve highly in a wide range of experiences within our diverse curriculum at both key stages 3 and 4. All students will become competent, capable and equipped in a range of religious, psychological, mise-en-scène and health and social concepts as well as in the skills of analysis, evaluation, knowledge and recall are so intrinsic in Film Studies, Psychology, Health and Social Care and RE. Our subjects epitomise and nurture learning through the exploration of British Fundamental Values of Tolerance, Respect, the Rule of Law, Democracy and Individual Liberty. Our vision is to ignite the futures of our learners through our curriculum and subject areas.
At KS3 we aim to build a foundation of religious knowledge that will enable learners to ‘reflect on the past and understand the now’ in political, social, moral, economic, religious and cultural contexts. We envision our students experiencing the awe and wonder of Religious Education both within and outside of the classroom context. By the end of this KS3 journey, students will be able to make an informed decision regarding which pathway they wish to further pursue in depth at KS4.
At KS4, students will develop an in-depth knowledge of one or more areas within our faculty. We ultimately aim for our students to continue their learning journey as successful psychologists, theologians and film critics. The faculty is also fully committed to ensuring our students have the opportunity to succeed through the most up to date vocational qualifications with regard to Health and Social Care.
