History

People think that history is just a study of past events and people, although this is true history is about much more. Our aims are not just to tell stories about past events but also to broaden people’s minds to how your world has evolved. We want pupils to ask questions about the past and to express their own opinions about people and events and develop their analytical skills.

We hope that learning about past mistakes can help in ensuring they do not happen again. History can help make sense of many other subjects. Finally we believe that a lack of historical knowledge prevents people from truly understanding the world they live in.
