“Those who don’t know History are destined to repeat it.”
History is a fascinating subject. Students learn about past societies, famous people and events, that have defined who we are as a nation today.
It is important that young people learn about the events of the past, so that in the future the human race, does not repeat the same mistakes and humanitarian disasters. Students will learn how England was established in 1066, right through to modern day twenty first century history and the foundations of terrorism.
In studying History students will be able to develop a variety of knowledge and skills, including evaluation, analysis and most importantly extended literacy skills. Students will have the opportunity to visit places of historical importance to support the engaging curriculum learnt in class.
