History

History is a record of human experience showing us how the past has shaped the present. We believe that this common inheritance is a vital subject of learning and enquiry, if only to understand how the modern world has evolved.  Without a knowledge of its history, no society can lay claim to the collective memory that makes up its unique identity.
 
We think it essential that children, from the earliest age, learn History in order to become informed citizens. Its natural fascination as a series of ‘stories’, often highly dramatic, recommends it as a subject for even the youngest pupils, while the sheer breadth of its subject matter, embracing a vast spectrum of social, political, economic and cultural aspects, provides a whole raft of valuable cross-curricular and PSHCE links. We aim to cultivate children who develop an ability to think critically about history, children who can analyse and debate but most importantly, we aim to instil a love for the subject that will carry through into the children’s senior schools and beyond.
