History

History has a deep but fast-paced curriculum that builds pupils’ knowledge, confidence, skills and chronological understanding in History. History offers pupils a wide range of opportunities to learn about the past in a scholarly manner, with the use of contemporary sources as well as interpretations encouraged. History is vital because we can only understand whom we are, as individuals or as a nation, if we understand where we have come from. All pupils are encouraged to consider ideas of empathy, morality and ethics of world events. As a result, pupils will have questioning minds and be skilled in independent thinking. Furthermore, pupils will have a strong grasp of how their world has been shaped through major historical events. History pupils will be inspired to undertake further personal study and more formal study at KS5 and undergraduate level.
