Humanities teachers at UCL Academy plan and teach a curriculum which is both inspiring and engaging and includes elements of cutting edge research.

Furthermore, we aim to broaden a learners understanding and appreciation of culture, in all its forms, experienced within the Academy, locally, nationally and internationally.

We aim to enrich our students with practical and real-life context self-directed activities and would love you to join our team on our journey to ‘outstanding’.
