History plays an important role in academy life and is a very popular subject amongst our pupils.
All students study History at Key Stage 3 to help develop their understanding of key historical events. At Key Stage 4 pupils have the option of taking either History or Geography. Taking History enables them to deepen and develop not only their history skills but also their literacy skills, through coursework and assessment.
Our curriculum in History inspires students to
- Deepen their understanding of world history to understand the today’s world better
- Develop their written and oral skills through a range of lessons
- Develop their analytical skills
We aim to deliver a balanced curriculum that teaches students Roman history through to more recent conflicts. We create a creative, challenging and stimulating environment where students can progress through a positive learning environment.
Students are encouraged to develop their own learning alongside teaching, so that pupils of all abilities are engaged, stimulated and make progress towards achieving their personal target grade.
