History

Why is the subject important?

Studying history equips students with a strong command of explicit knowledge on British history and embeds an appreciation for our rich and varied heritage. Chronologically, students gain fluency on how the people of Britain have shaped this nation and the impact of Britain鈥檚 role in the wider world. Students will also learn about developments around the globe which have shaped the world that we live in. Asking questions around change, continuity, similarity, difference and significance allows students to demonstrate critical thinking and reasoning skills which will allow us to become culturally aware. Throughout the curriculum there are opportunities for students to explore important topics linked to their wider world such as British values and healthy lifestyles. The ability to be reflective about beliefs, religious or otherwise, is a theme visited throughout the curriculum. Finally, history equips students with the knowledge and skills to participate in debates, explain their reasoning and communicate well.
