The history curriculum at Castle Mead Academy sets out to promote both ‘Discipline and Discovery’, as advocated by Ben Walsh. It exists, within the wider Castle Mead curriculum, to; enlighten our young people to the stories of the past, develop a love of learning these stories and establish, through a unifying, local lens, a shared appreciation of our island’s journey as well as promoting the history of the wider world. Additionally, and most importantly, it equips scholars with powerful knowledge of our past. History at CMA strives to allow all our scholars to engage in the discourse and practices of educated people, so that they can gain the powers of the powerful.
