History

History not only teaches you about events from the past, but also about how this affects our future. You will develop an understanding of how our society has evolved and why the world is the way it is. You will learn to study evidence, write clearly and assess critically, giving you a whole host of skills to use in the future

Purpose of the History Curriculum:

  1. To allow students to extend and deepen their chronologically secure knowledge and understanding of British, local and world history, so that is provides a well-informed context for wider learning
  2. To enable students to be able to identify significant events, make connections, draw contrasts, and analyse trends within periods and over long arcs of time
  3. To encourage students to use historical terms and concepts in increasingly sophisticated ways
  4. To allow students to pursue historically valid enquiries including some they have framed themselves, and create relevant, structured and supported accounts in response
  5. To ensure students understand how different types of historical sources are used rigorously to make historical claims and discern how and why contrasting arguments and interpretations of the past have been constructed
