Being an Historian

Our high-quality History curriculum will ensure our pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world.  Topics are informed by the national curriculum and are sensitive to children’s interests, as well as the context of the local area.


Teaching will equip pupils to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement. History helps pupils to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups, as well as their own identity and the challenges of their time. 


Our History curriculum motivates pupils, through engaging activities, trips and visitors that give all students an opportunity to question the past, develop their interest and inspire their curiosity to know more about the past.


The humanities (Geography and History) are also an ideal forum for enriching and supporting other areas of the curriculum, particularly English, Maths and Computing.  


Key questions for pupils in history:

Investigating and Interpreting the Past - Can I investigate and interpret the past?

Building an overview of World History and Understanding Chronology - Can I understand chronology?  Do I know when some important events in History took place?

Communicating Historically - Can I describe and explain the past?
