The Department 

The Humanities Department is a collegiate and highly successful team, with a particular passion for innovative approaches to teaching and learning. Student numbers are consistently growing year on year, so this is an exciting time to join the department.

Alongside the academic opportunities offered to students, extra-curricular trips, visits and support sessions are also key to our success. Opportunities such as revision conferences, visiting speakers and speakers from local universities have all helped to offer students a diverse educational experience. Equally, our students have placed a high value on support and revision workshops, including Easter Revision Conference sessions and one-to-one support. The majority of Humanities students go on to higher education in such fields as History, Geography, Politics and Law, and enjoy support and guidance from staff in making these important choices.
