The Humanities Department at Ellesmere Port Catholic High School aims to provide a fulfilling, knowledge-rich curriculum to all pupils which helps them understand aspects of modern society and the wider environmental, political and social issues which make up the world we live in today. This department will prepare all pupils to become confident, model citizens of the future in an ever-changing landscape.
This will be accomplished through our commitment to excellent teaching and learning; a knowledge-rich curriculum which enables pupils of all abilities to meet and exceed their potential. This will be instilled into all pupils throughout Years 7-13 through high expectations and challenge. We aim for students to become highly effective and independent learners, allowing them to develop their explanation, analysis and evaluation skills which are crucial to success in the workplace. Moreover, the department’s emphasis on ‘cultural capital’ will ensure pupils further their understanding of a wide and diverse range of cultures, societies and traditions.
