History

Studying History can help students develop their own identities through an understanding of History at personal, local, national and international levels. As they develop their understanding of the nature of historical study, students are encouraged to ask and answer important questions, evaluate evidence, identify and analyse different interpretations of the past, and learn to substantiate any arguments and judgments they make. As well as encouraging a mutual understanding of the historic origins of our ethnic and cultural diversity, History prepares students for the future, equipping them with knowledge and skills that are prized throughout life, enhancing employability and developing an ability to take part in a democratic society.

We teach History chronologically, thereby encouraging students to build a chronological framework of historical periods which will enable them to place new knowledge in its historical context as well as consider change and continuity within and across different periods of history. Our aim is for students to be able to:

  • Explore the diverse experiences, ideas, beliefs and attitudes of the men, women and children in past societies.
  • To understand the past, but also understand how the past has shaped the world today.
  • Identify the reasons for, and the consequences of, historical events and situations.
  • Evaluate a range of evidence ranging from textual, visual, oral and material and learn how to identify, select and use a range of historical sources in order to reach reasoned conclusions about events and people from the past.
  • Consider how and why Historians have formed different interpretations of the same events or people.
  • Learn how to identify and investigate, individually and as part of a team, specific historical questions or issues though a strong focus on enquiry.
  • Communicate their knowledge and understanding of history in a variety of ways, such as using role-play, model making, extended writing, poetry, debates and presentations.
