History

Our Vision: To develop an outstanding department that delivers an inspirational learning experience for its students.

At Key Stage 3 we aim to inspire students’ curiosity and equip them to ask perceptive questions, think critically, and begin to analyse evidence in order to develop their own opinions of past events.

Students are encouraged to devise their own theories and find evidence to support them. Across the three years students develop their understanding of historical concepts such as continuity and change, cause and consequence, significance and source evaluation skills.
