History at New-Bridge Integrated College
Ms S Harrison Head of Department
Mr D Kane
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.
History is a compulsory subject at Key Stage 3 and pupils study History 3 periods per week in Year 8-10 in mixed ability classes.
At KS3 each pupil has the opportunity to participate in one educational visit each year. In this school year we plan to visit the following landmarks:
Year 8 – Dromore Motte & Bailey and Carrickfergus Castle
Year 9 – Titanic Museum, Belfast
Year 10 – Open top bus tour of Belfast & Crumlin Road Gaol
History is a popular option choice at GCSE and AS/A2 Level .
We follow the CEA syllabuses and pupils study 5 periods per week in Years 11/12 and 9 periods per week in Sixth Form.
