Vision:

We have the vision to encourage our pupils to follow a skills and knowledge based curriculum that inspires an enthusiasm and passion for the study of History and how to apply that to the modern world. 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. We want pupils who strive to gather knowledge and crucially who remember that knowledge and link it up.
