The skills used; such as researching, making judgements, analysing facts, debating etc, will enable our students to develop into active social people who can contribute successfully to society and move into many different employment opportunities where they will have the confidence to progress and become anything they want to be.
Year 7 and 8
History is taught in Year 7 and 8 with the aim to encourage students to think independently and critically question their own heritage and the world we live in today. In preparation for GCSE we develop historical enquiry skills through a series of research projects in which the students own thoughts and findings are presented to their peers and judged by those peers. Throughout the program of study we enhance the opportunities to master skills in literacy, numeracy and ICT and promote creative thinking. Teaching strategies have been adapted to suit all types of learners making history enjoyable and accessible to all students.
