In BGE pupils rotate around our four key subjects; Geography, History, Modern Studies and RE.
In S3 personalisation and choice allows pupils to pick (up to) two Humanities subjects from Geography, History and Modern Studies. All S3 and S4 pupils take the Religion, Belief and Values course.
National Courses start in S4 and continue to S6.
The Faculty utilises MS Teams to provide a range of resources. This would include websites, ClickView playlists and externally provided material.
The Humanities faculty organise the school debating team and public speaking. Supported study and tuition takes place at lunchtimes and after school.
