What is a sustainable future? Is there such a thing as life after death? Are criminals born or raised? To what extent were the actions of the Suffragettes acceptable? The Faculty of World Affairs represents one of the most diverse subject areas at The Dean Academy and at the heart of everything we do is the Socratic teaching “The unexamined life is not worth living.”

Our programmes of study aim to link the local and the personal with the national and international. They are designed to develop a picture of a world open to interpretation and as such, students are encouraged to adopt an enquiring, critical and reflective approach. As a result, the study of subjects within the Faculty of World Affairs enhances a student’s spiritual, personal, social and moral development. At all times students are encouraged to be open-minded, tolerant and respectful of opinions different from their own.

The Faculty compromises of seven full-time teachers who teach across a range of subject areas including History, Geography, Classical Civilisations and Religion, Ethics & Society. At GCSE level the Faculty currently offers:

GCSE Classics – AQA Classical Civilisation
GCSE Geography – OCR Geography B
GCSE History – OCR History A
GCSE Modern World History – OCR History B
GCSE Philosophy and Applied Ethics – OCR Religious Studies B
