At Mayfield School the Humanities faculty comprises three different subjects; These are Geography, History and Religious Education (RE). As a faculty we believe Humanities is an incredibly important part of the curriculum, as we teach our students what it means to be Human.
Through Geography we understand the planet that we inhabit and what impact we have upon it.
Through History we unveil both the highs and lows of Human history, which enables students to understand the breakthroughs, as well as the mistakes that have resulted in shaping the present and the future for mankind.
In Religious Education we explain the many different beliefs carried through a range of Cultures throughout history, so that we can better understand the reasons behind leading a life heavily influenced by religion and encourage mankind to improve and prosper.

In the Humanities faculty, after school booster sessions are held on various days for all GCSE and A level students. For GCSE this is held once a fortnight based on the option block their class falls in.
Home learning is set once a fortnight for students in Key Stage 3 and weekly at GCSE level. Home learning at A level is set when needed but it is important that students revise independently all the time, in order to achieve their very best.
At Mayfield School, GCSE and A level Geography students are able to attend various trips including yearly overnight Fieldtrips.
Students studying History get the option to visit various museums in London, such as the British Museum and the Imperial War Museum; Students have also previously had the opportunity to visit cities abroad, including Paris.
Students have the opportunity to go to revision workshops and conferences to help them with their studies.
Citizenship Studies is about how people take an active part in democratic politics and work together for a better society, locally, nationally and globally. Students will learn about power, democracy, the operation of government and the legal system, and the role of the UK in the wider world. We explore and learn about different controversial and topical issues with political, social, ethical, economic and environmental aspects between local and global contexts. You will get to experience taking citizenship action and learn from trying to make a difference for your community.
