The main aim of History is to stimulate interest in and enthusiasm for the study of the past.
This involves the acquisition of knowledge and the use of study skills, research skills and presentation skills as well as the use of source materials.
We hope to provide a sound basis for further study and the pursuit of personal interest.
All Year 7 pupils follow an exciting History course which takes them from 400 B.C. and the start of the Roman Empire, through the Medieval period and into Tudor Times.
This includes a study of some of the most interesting people in history such as William the Conqueror and Henry VIII and some exciting events such as the murder of Archbishop Becket and the ravages of the Black Death.
Pupils will learn History through reading our range of text books,examining a variety of sources of evidence, watching historical documentaries and films and using the internet as a research tool.
We have a regular History club which is part of the School Plus programme.
This involves History detective work, making Histroy games and models as well as visits to local historical places of interest.
