Welcome to the History Department
The History Department aims to promote historical awareness and a passion for learning about the past, as well as equipping students with a range of intellectual skills. Students learn about the past in a variety of ways, studying a mix of British and World history, and are encouraged to use that knowledge to help them make sense of the present.
Through History, students also develop the ability to organise information, argue a case, think critically and analyse source material, all of which are transferable skills from which will benefit students in their study of other subjects and later in the world of work.
The range of sources students use in their enquiries includes contemporary footage, film, photos, artefacts, cartoons and paintings and is enhanced by our link with the Music department.
