Contextual Curriculum

In Year 8 our students study History, Geography, Religious Studies and Media Studies through the vehicle of Contextual Curriculum.  Every year we assess what are the current, domestic and global issues and we study them through the lens of these subjects.  Giving our students a vital and relevant insight into what are the underlying causes of current issues and helping causes of current issues and helping them understand the links between history, geopolitics, geography, the role of religion and how these are represented by both main stream and increasingly social media.  Some examples of what we have studied recently are the situation in Afghanistan, Black Lives Matter and the conflict in Ukraine.
