aspiring flourishing loving


At Ripon Cathedral School we want the humanities to develop skills for life: asking questions, finding information, sharing ideas and understanding other people’s feelings and experiences. Geography and History are taught through engaging themes which make links to other curricular areas. Lessons could include drawing, object handling, drama, photography or ICT – anything that captures the children’s curiosity in the past and the world around them. We also want our children to feel confident exploring their city and beyond, so each year group go on  Humanities-linked educational visits as part of the school’s commitment to delivering an enriched curriculum.

Visit the class pages to see curriculum themes for each year group.
