We believe that Humanities, as a group of complimentary subjects, have a fundamental role in the development and education of our students at Gosford Hill. We want our students to take their place in their community and be well – rounded, caring, active and concerned young citizens, with an understanding of, the values and attitudes of different cultures, and of the world around them and their place in it.
We will work together and support each other to give all students quality learning experiences, whatever their needs and abilities, including taking learning outside of the classroom. We value all learners for who they are and what they can bring to our subjects. We will encourage students to become independent learners and foster a sense of enquiry in them. We want to inspire the students to love learning and enjoy our subjects so that they choose to take them to higher levels.
We have high expectations of all our students, whatever their ability. We want them to achieve success in public examinations, at the best level they can. To this end we aim to deliver at least good lessons, with the needs of all learners met, using a variety of approaches.
