History provides pupils with an understanding of different people, cultures and the events that have helped to shape the world as it is today. History covers a wide range of time periods, societies and concepts. Pupils will learn to deal confidently with chronology, change and continuity across time, and the idea of historical significance. They will develop critical analysis skills, learning to assess sources and infer meaning.
History provides our pupils with the skills that are needed to distinguish between fact and opinion, the ability to structure an argument, and knowledge of how to present their ideas in different formats.
Understanding past events and people and their significance gives pupils a better insight into the world around them. We believe in the importance of not just learning history, but learning from history.
