Harris Academies
All Academies in our Federation aim to transform the lives of the students they serve by bringing about rapid improvement in examination results, personal development and aspiration.

World & Citizenship

Our Hub Vision:

We are a very passionate about our subjects and the fact that they all represent the world we live in and our ever-changing community.  Our vision is to inspire students to be curious about the world around them, to have empathy for others in an increasingly globalized world.

For our students to have the knowledge and transferable skills to enable them to be global citizens to understand where they are from and where they are going in order to be productive and valuable members of the global community.

History

2_927

As Thomas Jefferson once famously said “the world did not begin this morning with your breakfast”.

The study of history is vital to understanding the foundations that our current society is built upon, and without its study, it would be difficult to make any judgement on our present.  History provides us with the skills to analyse past events, and encourages us to make more informed decisions about the future.  It cannot always prevent past events from repeating them, but the study of history can certainly allow you to look at a situation with a more balanced opinion.  From the Roman Empire, through to the Civil Rights movement in 1960s  the breadth of our curriculum allows students to fully appreciate history on a global scale, creating inquisitive and broadminded individuals.

Through a diverse and challenging KS3 scheme of learning that takes in core aspects of what makes Britain the country it is today, we show students how their own heritage fits in to the fabric of today’s society. At KS4 and 5, our exam units focus on society, law and order, crime and punishment, political systems and government as well as social history using art, literature and music of the past. We cover core aspects such as liberty and equality, struggle for freedom, genocide and protest. We cover the impact and devastation wrought by war and examines in detail the consequences of unchecked power.

Geography

The Geography department aims to help students make sense of the world around them and believe that the personal development of students, spiritually, morally, socially and culturally plays a significant part in this. We therefore aim to provide many learning challenges and experiences, both inside and outside the classroom that help them to explore their own values and beliefs, social awareness, an understanding of their social and cultural traditions and an appreciation of the diversity and richness of other cultures.

Psychology

The course provides students with a sound understanding of the various methods and approaches in psychology at an introductory level. The students are introduced to a variety of topics which have been chosen for their importance and prominence within the core area and their relevance to everyday life. The course develops analytical and critical thinking skills and encourages an appreciation of ‘how science works’. Students learn to question and discuss psychological issues that may affect their own life, the direction of society and the future of the world.

Sociology

2_923

Do you wonder what fuels our apparent fixation with celebrity? Is it just gossip in a modern form? Is it that it provides endless, easily obtained content for our multiplying TV channels, newspaper pages and magazines? Could it be both? Or even something much more profound about the class system of modern Britain? You may be already thinking ‘But class doesn’t mean anything anymore’. Are you sure? Why is the number of years you can expect to live still

associated with your occupation? What about the way that your gender, religion, and ethnic background open up or close down opportunities in your life? What kinds of spiritual faith do people have in Britain today? And how far do the media affect how personal lifestyle choices are viewed by wider society? Sociology is the study of how society is organized and how we experience life. If the questions above arouse curiosity then this may be a good subject for you.

Religious Education

‘Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter’

Martin Luther King

Religious Education subject matter gives particular opportunities to promote an ethos of respect for others, challenge stereotypes and build understanding of other cultures and beliefs. This contributes to promoting a positive and inclusive school ethos that champions democratic values and human rights.

Religious Education provokes challenging questions about the meaning and purpose of life, beliefs, the self, issues of right and wrong, and what it means to be human. It develops students’ knowledge and understanding of Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, Sikhism and Buddhism, and the religious traditions that examine these questions, fostering personal reflection and spiritual development.

Religious Education encourages students to explore their own beliefs (whether they are religious or non-religious), in the light of what they learn, as they examine issues of religious belief and faith and how these impact on personal, institutional and social ethics; and to express their responses.
