Geography helps us to make sense of our place in a complex and ever changing world.
Through studying geography, you appreciate how places and landscapes are formed, how people and environments interact, what consequences arise from our everyday decisions, and what a diverse range of cultures and societies exist and interconnect.
Geography helps you to formulate questions, develop their intellectual skills and find answers to issues affecting your life.
History is the memory of human experience. Through the study of History students can gain a sense of their place in their local community, country and the wider world. History at Freebrough examines social, economic, military and political developments both in this country and further afield.
Students are taught to think critically about the causes and consequences of events and why somethings can change rapidly whilst other things do not. Students are also encouraged to develop analytical skills for the evaluation of evidence. They examine different interpretations of the past and are encouraged to develop and voice opinions supported by evidence. Students make inferences and judgements on the quality, accuracy and value of different types of evidence using accepted Historical criteria. Staff Freebrough are passionate about their subject and believe History is vitally important for the complete picture of the world it can paint.
Philosophy & Ethics at KS3 then RS at KS4 will encourage students to learn from different religions, beliefs, values and traditions, while exploring their own beliefs and questions of meaning. It challenges pupils to reflect on, consider, analyse, interpret and evaluate issues of truth, belief, faith and ethics and to communicate their responses.
Students will develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe, and prepare for life and work in modern Britain. Our programme of study aims to develop skills and attributes such as resilience, self-esteem, risk-management, teamwork and critical thinking in the context of learning grouped into three core themes: health and wellbeing, relationships and living in the wider world (including economic wellbeing and aspects of careers education).
