Aims

We believe History should be as real and interesting as possible and we try to bring History alive. Our aim is to encourage pupils to;

 

  • Enjoy the study of History,
  • Understand the past and gain knowledge,
  • Encourage open non-biased minds,
  • Develop opinions,
  • Communicate effectively,
  • Work independently and to co-operate positively with others.
