Vision:

We have the vision to encourage our pupils to follow a skills and knowledge based curriculum that inspires an interest, enthusiasm and passion for the study of History. We will aim to encourage this before pupils join the school through primary transition and we will encourage pupils to make links with other curriculum areas through their work in History. Ultimately, we aim to contribute significantly to preparation for future life through the skills learned and developed in History, such as interpretation, evaluation, substantiating judgements and showing conceptual awareness.
