Sir William Ramsay School

Empowering Everyone to Achieve


Humanities Vision

The school has a view that students should be raised above the ordinary by developing and delivering lifelong learning which transforms lives. It encourages compassion and respect as well as diversity and inclusivity. In humanities, we believe these should be reflected in each of our subjects’ curricula through examining the concept of identity, diversity and inspiring in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives developing on the school’s theme of lifelong learning. Our subjects’ aim to challenge students to think in a critical and scientific way and take them beyond their every day thereby building cultural capital is students. We see education as a tool for social justice and see a diverse and inclusive curriculum as a must. We therefore ensure our curriculum choices reflects the diversity and context of our school and community. Students in humanities should be able to challenge theories/concepts and research, and to be able to think about issues from different perspectives.
