History enables students to develop an understanding of the changing world within which they live by encouraging them to link the past to the present.  

To study and examine the development of society, over time, within Britain and the wider world.  To analyse and understand the causes of key historical events and the significance of the changes and consequences that they can bring about.  Students are encouraged to develop an awareness of social, political, economic and religious factors and how they interact to influence patterns of change and continuity.  They will be encouraged to not just learn history, but to learn from it so as to better understand past events and people and their significance. Students will analyse and develop their knowledge and understanding of specific historical periods, in doing so they will develop a working knowledge of the skills related to handling historical evidence to help them develop their understanding of the past.  They will also identify how historical interpretations can differ and evaluate why this is so.
