The History Department  aims for pupils to acquire and develop: an overview of the past; an increasingly firm understanding of organising concepts; more purposeful and increasingly analytical enquiry; a grasp of the importance of historical interpretation.

Through their study of History, we hope pupils will gain: a deeper understanding of contemporary society; respect for social, cultural, ethnic and religious diversity; skills to actively participate in our complex and plural society.
