The intent of the History Department is to ensure all pupils irrespective of ability and social background become tolerant, inquisitive and questioning individuals who ultimately make a positive contribution to society.
The department aims to achieve this by delivering a wide ranging and challenging curriculum that encompasses a study of British history and other cultures and how significant events of the past have shaped the present.
The department endeavours to equip young people with the skills to effectively communicate their ideas, debate constructively and use historical skills with accuracy and precision.
By providing this interesting, diverse and relevant curriculum the department seeks to contribute to the wider curriculum and mission statement of the school.
The department’s intent and vision is outlined in the overview of content and schemes of work.
