The History department is a dedicated and experienced team of practitioners who work together to engage and inspire students. The department has created schemes of learning that encourage a natural curiosity for the subject and maximise student outcomes. The chronological teaching of topics has resulted in a smooth progression through the key stages, and ensures success at GCSE and beyond. The high number of students who select GCSE and A Level History is a testament to how successful the department is.
The department understands the need to prepare students for the modern world and therefore places priority on learning about topics that have relevance to an understanding of issues that confront everyone. At the same time, students are encouraged to promote critical thinking and independent enquiry so that all students are given the opportunity to challenge themselves and develop a desire for further pursuit of the subject.
