Liberal arts

The subjects we study at school are tiny pieces of an infinite jigsaw.

Liberal arts
Taken in isolation, history, science, maths, geography, art, modern languages and literature only reveal a small part of the overall picture.

Liberal Arts takes a different approach, drawing on multiple disciplines in order to discover new knowledge and reach a deeper understanding of the world we inhabit.

It means taking a philosophical approach to thinking, analysing great works of art and literature, interpreting history and politics and understanding how this affects the world we live in today. Liberal Arts is the art of free thinking.
