Key information about subject: History skills are extremely useful across many subjects and later on in life. It’s not just about the writing, but judging how useful information can be and using that information to argue a point of view.
Over the years, the department has achieved many successes; we are proud to say we achieve better results than the national average at GCSE. Teachers in our department embrace new innovative techniques and frequently update our teaching methods to help raise standards and encourage more progress in our pupils.
Above all, our aim is to bring History to life by making lessons interesting, enjoyable and accessible to all. Along the way we hope pupils will gain in confidence and learn to tolerate and understand different views and opinions – whilst having fun!
