Jesuit college to become Specialist Humanities School
Comment Email Print
¬†St Ignatius College in Enfield is celebrating the news this week that its bid to become a Specialist Humanities School has succeeded and the status will be assumed in September. The Jesuit college in north London is the first Enfield school to qualify in the Humanities and so fills an important need in the borough. The three departments spearheading the effort, History, Geography and Religious Education, have an established record of success and the specialism was a logical choice. The move will mean that the school can develop the provision of the lead subjects at Key Stage Three, and offer them to more pupils at KS Four and Five; the welcome injection of capital funding will help enhance the facilities and resources for all. St Ignatius will be working with local Catholic schools in developing teaching and learning in the humanities, and there are schemes too for a working relationship with the local branches of the Cheshire Homes, Age Concern and other community groups. Headmaster Paul Adams said: "We are obviously very pleased with the news, and we are looking forward to further successful development both in the humanities and throughout the school. The bid has involved a huge amount of work from a dedicated team of staff and the outcome is all the more gratifying since the whole College community ≠ trustees, governors, staff, boys, parents and Old Ignatians - was involved in raising the £50,000 sponsorship to support the project. It is good that we will be able to put into practice the plans both for our own pupils, and also for the local community." Source: Jesuit Communications Office
