History

Statement

The History department has a broad aim to investigate peoples and societies from our past. We want to make the study of History relevant and engaging to our students in order to foster independent learning skills and encourage our students to take an interest in the world around them.

Year 7-11 Overview of the Curriculum

The Year 7/8/9/10/11 Schemes of work ensure that students develop their chronological understanding of the past.

The History department ensures that students experience their study of History by studying different types of source material in order to make informed judgements and evaluations of past societies and conflicts.

The History curriculum is knowledge rich and this enables our students to complete extended narratives of the past supporting their literacy skills and their ability to communicate effectively.
