Teaching & Learning
For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, so that by steadfastness and by the encouragement of the scriptures we might have hope.
Our vision in History is to encourage interest in, and enjoyment of, learning about the past. Our aim is to help students understand how, why and when things have changed over time developing their understanding of our world and country today. We actively encourage students to think for themselves, using research and evidence gathering so as to develop their own interpretation of the past thereby reaching supported judgements. Through History, students develop empathy and an understanding of personal motivation, in addition to the ability to communicate their thoughts and ideas clearly both verbally and in writing. Our goal is for students to acquire knowledge and skills in History which will serve them well in other subjects, with their educational and career aspirations and allow them to become active and engaged British citizens who understand their democratic past.
