Cultural Perspectives

Welcome to the world of the ‘cultural perspectives’

Students will choose two cultural perspectives and study one during term 1 and the other during term 2. Each course has one or two sessions per week and lasts around 6 or 7 weeks.

Teachers use their creativity, backgrounds and/or wider interest to design a cultural perspective course that appeals to students. Students must choose and stay on board their chosen cultural experience. It is not an opt-in. 

We design these perspectives to particularly:

  • encourage creativity and wider reading
  • spark interest and generate a sense of ‘awe and wonder’ around a topic or event
  • give students genuine opportunities to talk, debate and show leadership
  • be rooted in spiritual, moral, social and cultural education.

Students also have to submit a final response to the cultural perspective session. It doesn’t necessarily follow the response has to be an essay! The response expected will reflect the cultural perspective itself, naturally blending with the topic, delivery and content of the course itself. It could be a presentation, artefact, dramatic piece – who knows?

The teacher’s judgement on the quality of the response will be included in our reports to parents and feedback to students.

Here are the titles of the current cultural perspectives:

  • Curation in the modern world 
  • The science of changing the world
  • First aid skills for everyday life 
  • Social media and digital footprints 
  • Space – the final frontier?
  • The importance of branding and how it has changed over time 
  • Understanding kindness
  • Philosophy through debate/film 
  • Statues in Parliament Square
