International Studies

The International Studies Department comprises of four distinct subject areas; Geography, History, Modern Foreign Languages and PSHE. Each subject is delivered, wherever possible, by specialist teachers. The Department collaborates and works very closely together in order to provide every student with a rewarding learning experience.

International Studies at Newcastle Academy provides pupils with an understanding of important topical issues relevant to everyday life – students not only develop critical analysis skills, but also learn to evaluate what they see in the world around them. Through the exploration of International Studies we learn how to think creatively and critically, to reason, and to ask questions. Students studying International Studies at Newcastle Academy have the opportunity to learn about and explore the cultural, economic, environmental, historical, moral, political, religious, social, spatial and spiritual dimensions of the human condition within individual, family, local, national and global contexts.

International Studies at Newcastle Academy are taught across both key stages and students are invited to take part in our trips to Amsterdam and Auschwitz.
