Knowing about the past means you can make sense of the present. Our intention is to explain the world and to understand the main events that have formed the way we live today. British history from c.1000 - 2000 is the main narrative used to anchor understanding. Students are encouraged to explore the past from a variety of different perspectives in order to become analytical citizens who can question human motivation and society with skill and confidence.
