History is an important and popular subject within the school which encourages students to think critically about evidence, events and the world in which they live.
The department has created a stimulating learning environment and a challenging curriculum designed to develop inquisitive minds that care about themselves, each other, their past and their future.
The primary objective of the History Department is to encourage all students to work hard, try new things, have opinions, and have the conviction to stand by their beliefs.
At KS3, in Years 7, 8 and 9 students carry out numerous historical enquiries on many different themes, including: The Power of the Church, Conflict and Cooperation, Empire, Migration and Movement, and The Rulers and Ruled.
At KS4, in Years 10 and 11 students that opt for History at GCSE will study: Germany, 1890–1945: Democracy and dictatorship, Conflict and tension, 1894–1918, Britain: Health and the people: c1000 to the present day, and Elizabethan England, c1568–1603.
