Humanities

About the Faculty

We offer our pupils a range of humanities subjects to help them gain a vast knowledge of how the world works, while building key skills such as how to read and write in a creative, critical and logical way.

Pupils studying one of the humanities subjects at Christ College will not only gain a range of valuable skills that can be used after education but will receive a hands-on learning experience to help enhance their studies.

Our geography pupils have excellent access to innovative technology including geographic information system (GIS) – a system designed to capture, analyse, manage, and present spatial or geographic data - and digital mapping technology, while outside the classroom our pupils will undertake fieldwork at local sites, such as the National Parks, to further afield, such as the Pembrokeshire Coast or the French Alps.

In addition to our geography pupils exploring the coastal regions, our history pupils will get to discover the past direct with trips to the Big Pit in Blaenavon or the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp in Krakow, while our religious studies pupils can gain a first-hand insight into religion with trips to places such as synagogues and cathedrals across Wales.

We pride ourselves in working with a range of pupils and abilities and have been delighted to see many of our pupils take up humanities subjects in University.
