The History curriculum provides students with an opportunity to engage with past societies both within the British Isles as well as globally. Therefore, allowing students to integrate and interweave the wide ranges of historical voices and narratives as well as give students the skills to analyse and evaluate in an academic format.
Students will be encouraged to enhance critical skills and an analytical frame of mind as students develop ‘second-order thinking’ such as causation, historical change, source analysis, historical significance and interpretations. Having studied history, students will come away with a deeper understanding of how past events have formed the world around them. Cultivating a sense of respect and pride for themselves and an understanding of cultural differences.
