The Stockport Academy Humanities Department comprises of of three disciplines: Geography, History and Religious Education. In Key Stage 3, Stockport Academy students study all of these subjects in order for them to be successful, curious and well-rounded learners in preparation for Key Stage 4.

During the Pathways process that will designate their chosen subjects for Key Stage 4, all students will study either Geography or History but will have the option to also study both if they choose. Stockport Academy students will also have the opportunity to study Religious Education in Key Stage 4 if they wish. Humanities focus on both the past and present actions of people. The humanities teach us to understand the physical processes of the world, how humans behave and how to understand people from all different cultures and backgrounds.
