History

Welcome to the History Department 

Department Vision:

The History Department aims to inspire a love of history in our students and an appreciation of its importance.

We aim to develop in them the skills necessary to enjoy the subject to its full and to maximise their potential in it.

Enjoyment and achievement go hand in hand and it is certainly our aim that all who wish to study History at ‘the next level’, be that GCSE, A level or university, can do so and that they achieve the highest standards of which they are capable.

We look to achieve our aims by teaching a wide range of interesting courses and adopting a wide variety of teaching and learning strategies.
