History

History is an academic discipline, providing coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. History helps students to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups, as well as their own identity and the challenges of their time.   

Our History curriculum aims to prepare our students with the skills and knowledge required for them to become well-rounded citizens. Students study a wide range of historical periods from Anglo-Saxon England to 21st century political developments. This enables students to study the past from a variety of standpoints and to make connections and comparisons over time.   

To further develop an appreciation of culture, History offers students a range of experiences outside of the classroom environment. These opportunities are designed to develop students’ learning experience and expand their cultural understanding of the world around them.   

“If you don’t know history, you don’t know anything. You are like a leaf that doesn’t know it is part of a tree.”

Michael Crichton
