In History, students follow a chronological narrative that explores how, why and to what extent the world has changed. Learning about the past gives us an idea about what’s coming in the future. In Year 7 students discover UK history from 1066-1500, including the Battle of Hastings, life in Medieval England and the Black Death. The Year 8 curriculum covers the 20th Century looking in particular at both World Wars, The Holocaust and life in post war Britain. GCSE studies begin in Year 9 by looking at America from 1920- 1973 including the KKK, gangsters and prohibition, and Martin Luther King.
