Welcome to History

As Historians we are enthusiastic about the study of all aspects of History and pass this on to students through dynamic and engaging learning. To understand the world around us today it is vital that we understand the past, and the developments and changes which shaped the world in which we live. The History curriculum studied by our students is creative, historically rigorous and covers a range of thrilling themes such as the fight for women’s rights, revolution and the battle for political power in the United Kingdom.
