Humanities comprises History, Classics, Theology and *History of Art.

In the Shell year, the lesson allocation is three periods per cycle for History, four for Classics (with boys studying either Latin or Classical Civilisation, with Greek taught separately, off-timetable) and one period for Theology. As Options at GCSE, these subjects are taught for either four or five periods per cycle, depending on the option block and year. In the sixth form, all subjects are taught for ten periods a cycle. *History of Art is available only at A level.

Iain Campbell
Iain Campbell
Head of Classics
I came to teach at Radley in 1997, after completing a degree in Classics and a PGCE at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge, and took over as Head of Department in 2013. Like the rest of the Department, I am heavily involved in the extra-curricular life of the College, coaching rugby, hockey and cricket, and playing the latter two whenever I can find the opportunity. I also oversee the extra-curricular Philosophy at Radley, and have a long-standing interest in First World War Poetry and Heavy Metal music, having written articles on the influence of the Classics on both.

Tom Norton
Head of History
I graduated from Somerville College, Oxford, with a degree in Ancient and Modern History, before serving for 9 years as a Royal Marines officer including operational tours of Iraq, Northern Ireland and Afghanistan. I turned teacher in 2009, completing a PGCE and teaching History and Classics at Wellington College before joining Radley in 2013. I particularly enjoy studying the Late Modern period, notably the French Revolution and the development of the British Empire, as well as the ancient Greek world. When not in department I enjoy coaching a range of team sports and assisting with outdoor pursuits through the CCF.
