History

Our Key Stage 3 Curriculum in designed to develop Historical skills such as extended essay writing, supporting arguments with factual information and questioning historical sources. Such skills are transferrable to other subjects and are of great use at GCSE and beyond. Students take part in activities which are equally challenging, yet fun and engaging. Students will study a wide range of topics, beginning with investigating the Norman, medieval, Tudor and Stuart periods in Year 7. This is followed by studying slavery, the industrial revolution and the First World War in Year 8. Finally moving towards the more challenging aspects of studying Nazi Germany and the Cold War in Year 9.
