The Humanities Department comprises Geography and History. At present the department consists of five full time teachers (three Geographers and two historians).
At Key Stage 3, students follow a programme of study that covers a range of contemporary geographical issues, such as hazards, natural resources, the Middle East, urbanisation and international development.
Geography is a popular subject at GCSE and is delivered from Year 9. Pupils follow the new AQA GCSE 9-1 specification. GCSE results are consistently above national averages. In 2017 73.5% of geographers achieved A*-C including 24% at A*-A.
Pupils are taught in mixed ability groups and have three lessons per fortnight at KS3 and five lessons per fortnight at KS4.
The department is committed to education beyond the classroom and as such we offer a range of fieldwork opportunities. Pupils visit locations locally for example Formby and Southport and further afield such as Bury, Cuerdon Valley. More is planned for the future.
The geography department has three dedicated classrooms, all of which are equipped with a desktop computer, overhead projector and interactive whiteboard. The department has a range of resources to support teaching and learning and has access to ICT rooms via a booking system. The department is continually reviewing schemes of work to enable pupils to maximise their learning.
The successful candidate needs to be a passionate geographer with excellent subject knowledge in order to engage and motivate our pupils to achieve great results.
