THE prestigious Raine’s Foundation school in London’s East End has achieved specialist college’ status in humanities.
New funding for the status has been granted by Whitehall this week, enabling the school to refurbish the humanities department at the campus in Bethnal Green with interactive whiteboards and new audio-visual equipment.
“Being a specialist humanities college doesn’t mean other subjects won’t matter as much,” assured Raine’s deputy head Rob Hullett.
“Our humanities status will help us to prepare students for an active part in the diverse multi-faith world we live in, just as Henry Raine our founder would have wished. We are building on our success in religious studies, citizenship and English.”
