Humanities at Beechen Cliff
About the faculty
The Humanities subjects of Religious Studies, History and Geography are popular and successful at Beechen Cliff, with well-established track records.
The teaching team of eight full time staff, three part time and several members of the leadership team are committed to delivering quality lessons and making the respective topics relevant and indeed, vital to understanding contemporary issues. Engaging tasks, re-enactments, visits, modelling, cake making and video production are just some activities that demonstrate the vibrant and imaginative approach staff take towards Humanities lessons at Beechen Cliff. The uptake of Humanities subjects at GCSE and A’level is strength of the faculty and a testament to the enthusiasm of staff and pupils alike.
Find out more about the topics studied by each subject by following links from this page. For each year group there are also homework links/tasks, revision advice and photos of various trips and visits. Pupils are encouraged to use these links on a regular basis.
Needless to say that if you have any questions about the faculty, then please contact the school. Even better pop in and visit us in action!
