Our history curriculum has been designed to celebrate the cultural diversity and identities of our pupils whilst also ensuring their understanding of history both in Britain and around the world is well developed.

Topics and lessons are designed to allow pupils to access and come to understand history through hands-on, practical experiences. They use primary and secondary sources to develop their knowledge and skills and trips and visits to see and experience these themselves.

School-wide theme days provide exciting opportunities for pupils to delve deeper into topics and bring them to life. A clear progression of skills ensures their learning develops breadth and depth each year.

Our school-wide focus on subject-specific vocabulary runs through this subject and builds upon vocabulary taught across the curriculum.
