History at KS3 is not only designed to enthuse, but to equip students with knowledge and skills that will prepare them to become life-long learners.
Our topics are carefully chosen and thoughtfully planned to promote critical thinking and independent enquiry, so that students are given the opportunity to challenge their misconceptions, build upon their curiosity of the past and consider the relevance to issues that confront all of us in the modern world. Our Year 7 course focuses on the theme of ‘Conquest and Settlement in Medieval Europe and the Arab World’, moving into ‘Religion, Empire and Industrialisation in the Early Modern World’ in Year 8, and Year 9 explores ‘Conflicts in the c20th World’. We are privileged to host a visit from a Holocaust speaker for Year 9 students, and various off-site visits, enriching opportunities that allow students to actively participate in historical issues that have meaning in the present day.
Our Open Evening will be on Monday 2nd October 6:00pm - 8:30pm. Sign up to get early information on what will be happening, plus, ask us a question - we are going to try and answer some at the speeches!
