Welcome to the humanities department; at Stretford High, we deliver a combined Humanities programme consisting of Geography, History and Religious studies. Our aim is to inspire a curiosity and fascination about the world in which we live.
Students have two forty-five minute lessons each week as part of their Humanities curriculum. Links between the three subjects are identified and embraced in the amalgamated humanities programme of study. All programmes meet the requirements of the national curriculum.
