Aims of Department

Our teachers are knowledgeable and experienced in the subject of History. They are enthusiastic about their subject and wish to pass this enthusiasm on to their students. History is an academically rigorous subject that is highly regarded by universities and employers, developing skills that will help the students in future education and in their workplace.

Students from Year 8 to Year 10 will develop the skills that are required to succeed at GCSE and A’Level History. However, the key benefit of studying History extends beyond the classroom. It will develop students as inquiring, curious and critical thinkers and spark a lifelong interest in making sense of the past.
