In History, we explore the events of the past and the important lessons we can learn from them. We encourage all students to be independent learners; not to believe what they are told, but to research and examine the evidence for themselves. We aim for all students to discover a passion for leaning about the events of the past and finding out how these have shaped the present. We focus on developing students’ knowledge retention and literacy that will allow them to demonstrate their understanding and help them to reach their own judgements. We want all students to develop the transferable skills they need to improve within history, the wider curriculum and to access further education.
