Curriculum Intent

In History, we aim to develop a love of the study of History, an enquiring mind and to develop a fascination for the past. We cover Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural issues as well as the diversity of societies and relationships which will give them a sense of understanding the world they live in. History is taught both chronologically and thematically across all year groups. There is a regional, national and international focus, with an emphasis on developing the necessary skills to be successful at GCSE and beyond, including literacy. Preparation time for assessments has been incorporated into the programme of study to ensure that learners are able to prepare themselves to maximise their potential.
