History is a key aspect of our curriculum that delves into the diverse and complex nature of the past through a variety of means. Our curriculum provides students with a vast amount of knowledge which captures key moments of the past to provide insight into how it has shaped the world we live in today. The topics studied aim to give students exposure and understanding of moral and social issues to allow them to develop their own moral compass in society.
In History we foster curiosity to inspire students to challenge and question the past, present and future. To seek out opportunities to formulate and articulate judgements which are supported by succinct evidence and clarity. We aim to equip our students with the ability to critically analyse situations, unpick unanswered question, empathise and communicate with others in order to thrive to create their own history.
The qualification we study for at GCSE is AQA 8145
