Quote: ‘History can give us a fuller understanding of ourselves, and of our common humanity, so that we can better face the future.’ – Robert Penn Warren

KS3 broadly follows a national curriculum model and covers c1000 years of history. This allows student to study both breadth and depth studies as well as develop their critical thinking and historical source skills.    KS4 covers a thematic study to understand change and continuity across a long sweep of history, including the most significant characteristics from different ages in paper 1. A period and British depth Study in Paper 2, focuses on a substantial and coherent time span, to allow study of the complexity of society / historical situation and the interplay of different aspects within it. Modern Depth Study paper 3 again focuses on a substantial and coherent time span, to allow study of the complexity of society / historical situation using different historical interpretations. Our aims are to:

  • build on prior learning in primary school and at KS3 in order to develop a life-long passion and enthusiasm for history
  • develop students’ understanding of the history of Britain and the events that shaped it. Develop students’ understanding the role Britain played in key events in world history
  • develop students’ understanding of historical concepts such as cause and consequence and change and continuity
  • develop students’ skills to interrogate a range of historical material and sources
  • encourage all students to consider further study of history or history related subject such as politics at post-16 and beyond
  • develop students’ interest in history in the wider world through activities such as discussion, links to world events and history in the news

Teaching will happen in mixed ability groups with years KS3 usually being taught in form groups and KS4 taught in option groups
