The Humanities Faculty

The Humanities Faculty offers students from all years the opportunity to enhance their homework, projects etc. most lunchtimes and after school on Mondays. These support sessions are available in L10 every Monday from 3.15 pm.

The Faculty is also investigating a number of ways in which we can enrich the Humanities education of the students at Tarleton Academy, making the most of the myriad of opportunities offered by the locality to improve students’ understanding of and love for the Humanities subjects.


Students have the opportunity to carry out fieldwork throughout their studies at school. Year 7, 8 and 9 students carry out a local fieldwork investigation, developing skills that they will use if they choose Geography as a GCSE subject.

At GCSE students undertake a 2 fieldwork investigations that are compulsory and an essential part of their course. These fieldwork tasks take place in two contrasting locations to cover aspects of human and physical Geography.


The History department is also planning a Battlefields Study Tour in July 2022 for Year 9 and 10.

Religious Studies

As part of the Religious Studies programme of study students are taken to a place of worship. These visits are highly education experiences and enhance subject knowledge learnt in the classroom. In addition to this, these visits help our students to explore cultural similarities and differences and observe faith in action.
