Humanities Vision

The Barnsley Academy Humanities team are committed in ensuring that all pupils make excellent progress in History and Geography. We will strive to do this through excellent teaching which will engage and motivate them to work and achieve the very best results that they can. We will work collaboratively in our department to continually develop our own practice to the benefit of all students.

Pupils will be able to study History and Geography throughout KS3, continuing through to GCSE where they will further develop their skill set, which is already embedded through a tailored curriculum in KS3. 

We will focus on encouraging pupil independence and enquiry through pupil-led activities with teacher guidance throughout. We will develop transferrable skills such as inference, evaluation and information handling which can be used across the curriculum. Our classrooms will provide students with an environment where they are free to question and query (based upon facts) and attempt to understand both sides of a situation. It gives students scope to debate and reason, without being judged.
