The Humanities area of learning seeks to encourage learners to develop their knowledge and understanding about the world around them.   We want our students to become ethical, informed citizens of Wales and the world.  We encourage our learners to engage with the most important issues facing humanity, including sustainability and social change, and help to develop the skills necessary to interpret and articulate the past and the present.

Pupils are taught in their form classes in mixed ability groups.
