“The more you know about the past, the better prepared you are for the future.”
Our three-year Key Stage 3 model requires pupils to study a chronological narrative of the British Isles from the arrival of the Romans to the present day, the history of non-European societies, and some of the most significant events in world history.
At Key Stage 3, each year has a conceptual theme drawn through all units (Democracy in Year 7; Liberty and Justice in Year 8; Nationalism and Self-Determination in Year 9) allowing teachers to place various historical events within a conceptual framework.
At Key Stage 4, pupils undertake a range of depth and breadth studies as outlined by our chosen exam board, Pearson Edexcel. They are supported to develop further key historical skills such as source analysis, evaluation and explanation, and are encouraged to think more deeply about how historians make judgements about the past.
At Key Stage 5 we have specialised teaching for each of the four units comprising the History A-level ensuring that pupils at this level are well-supported to refine their skills before taking their next steps into Higher Education.
Details of the Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 curriculum can also be found below.
Our pupils will achieve highly in History through the emergence of sustained engagement with this intellectually challenging but humanly indispensable enterprise.
Knowledge of history and understanding of the way that historical knowledge emerges matters a great deal for any student learning what it means to be human, and for any society that wants to try and understand itself and that values rational and open enquiry, critical examination of evidence, openness to alternative perspectives, and related dispositions and attitudes.
