Pupils today see history being made, as it happens and before it has been censored by their elders. It is part of our responsibility as educators to help the decision makers of the future understand the need to think, challenge and be able to reason, rather than just follow.
From the pyramids of Egypt to the events of World War Two, we guide our pupils through a wide range of topics to try to give them fundamental skills so that they can start to make sense of history and not to see it just as a confused collection of facts.
We provide a framework of historical skills for the pupils to fall back on so that they can find evidence, consider it, and reach their own conclusions. A sense of chronology, an ability to investigate different styles of evidence and its reliability, assist greatly with this process.
Pupils’ experiences are enriched by regular day trips that help bring learning to life.
