Aims and Values

Social Subjects and RMPS is the study of people and places in the past and present, the study of moral values and dilemmas, of religions across the globe, and the study of humanity.

Our values mirror the school values – Focus, Respect, Integrity and Perseverance. We strive to provide learning opportunities of the highest standard, and expect all pupils to work hard and to the best of their ability.  Employers, colleges and universities place a high value on skills developed through the study of Social Subjects, History, and RMPS.

The department celebrates success through:

  • Stars of the Week Display Board – each teacher nominates a pupil from their classes who have displayed focus, respect, integrity and perseverance consistently throughout the week.
    • Displaying pupil work in classes and corridors.
    • Class Charts.
    • Sharing success on the department’s Twitter and Instagram accounts
