We aim to promote an interest in and an enjoyment of history as well as an understanding of how the past has shaped the world in which we live today. We employ skills-based teaching methods which foster a critical approach to the examination of many types of historical evidence as well as developing essential study skills. Our courses are designed to enable pupils to understand a range of key historical ideas. These include:
Cause and consequence Continuity and change Similarity and difference Present their thoughts clearly and logically Understand different interpretations of history Understand events and issues from the point of view of people from the past Understand historical evidence Assess the usefulness of evidence Understand the order of events in time
Pupils are assessed continuously and there are annual examinations to test their acquisition of the above skills.
