"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."

George Santayana

"Students enjoy learning History at all ages because of the wide range of topics studied and the approaches to teaching that are taken" ... "Lessons are characterised by a good learning environment and outstanding relationships" ... "Students' behaviour (in History) is outstanding.  They enjoy the good quality of learning that teachers offer them" ... "Staff go out of their way to help students."

History Department Ofsted Inspection

The History department believes that through our knowledge and understanding of the past we can better understand the present.  This is especially important as students gain a greater understanding of the world around them - locally, nationally and internationally.

The study of History enables students to question information, analyse data and become aware of the many short and long term consequences of events.
