The Humanities Department teaches Geography and History, but also provides a significant contribution towards students wider education during form time in the mornings. Ms Aoife and Mr Phil both teach Geography and History.
Our subjects are all about people so that student develop an understanding of how the fit into the world, how events are the world impact upon them, how their actions have potentially global impacts and fostering a sense of responsibilty and respects for ourselves, the people, animals and environments into which we come into contact with.
Our curriculum is designed so that we focus very much on the UAE and local geography and history in Year 7 and progressively becomes more global and contemporary in Year 9, culminating in units on globalisation and the 20th Century.
We take a very much skills based approach, with lots of practical learning and field work so that our students are equipped with all of the skills that they need for their iGCSEs and adult life, in order to become productive global citizens in our rapidly changing world.
At iGCSE, we offer Geography, Global Citizenship and History as options.
At iA Level, we offer Geography only.
