Do you enjoy meeting and getting to know other people - from other times and places? Do you enjoy travel and finding out about our place on the planet? Do you want to better understand current events, Government decisions and movie plots? Are you interested in the connections between cultures and places, from the ancient and recent past, and how these shape our world today and into the future?
The Social Sciences Department offers Classical Studies, Geography and History in the senior school. These subjects provide a window on the world and how people interact with the natural environment and each other. They are an opportunity to understand how events of the past impact on society today and into the future.
These subjects are all open entry to those with an inquiring mind and some abilities in reading and expressing your ideas in writing.
