We aim to give our students a strong understanding of past events, people, and change. This is done through the use of evidence and interpretations to draw conclusions and create judgements of their own.

Knowledge, Understanding and Skills
5 year learning journey
Studying history helps us understand and grapple with complex questions and dilemmas by examining how the past has shaped (and continues to shape) global, national, and local relationships between societies and people.
Within History we assess students' learning through knowledge checkpoint quizzes, challenge questions, prep, 5 a day, end of term assessments, exam questions and mock papers at GCSE.
It is important that students receive regular feedback in order for them to continue to improve, meet and exceed their potential within history. Students receive feedback through our marking proformas in books, verbal feedback in lessons and end of term assessment feedback.
