Ms K. Hall

The Humanities GCSE blends together elements of other subjects (mainly History, Geography, Religious Studies and Sociology) into a coherent, integrated course.  The study of Humanities allows students to focus on important contemporary issues such as global warming, terrorism, animal rights and abortion and challenge their understanding of the world around them.
