The Humanities Faculty is one of the largest within Quintin Kynaston. Students are able to study a variety of subjects at all key stage levels within the faculty. These include Religious Studies, Geography, History, Psychology, Government and Politics, Sociology and Health and Social care.

The essence of the Humanities Faculty is very much about developing students to become active and engaged citizens. These skills are developed through a broad and challenging curriculum where students reflect on major events from the past; current modern day world issues; the importance of culture and identity as well as gaining an understanding of how decisions they make can change the future world.

This year the Humanities Faculty have introduced the Humanities GCSE to year 9. This intensive programme allows all students in year 9 to gain a qualification and also the opportunity to develop much important skills before their GCSE years. This subject is taught to students by one teacher and for 5 lessons a week. This allows students to develop an excellent rapport with that teacher and provides them with the consistency that they had in year 7, where Humanities was taught by the same teacher as part of their transition from primary school.

Humanities provides many learning opportunities outside of the classroom in the form of trips and residentials. At GCSE level students complete their coursework through a 5 day residential to Spain. For the first time there are also residential revision trips planned for all GCSE classes this academic year. At KS3 level there are educational trips to Dover Castle, a photographic local area study and visiting various religious and cultural sites throughout London.

The Humanities Department is made up of a young and enthusiastic team of teachers who are very passionate about their subject areas. This is evident through the popularity of all subjects at KS4 and KS5 levels.
