Key Stage 3

Students in Year 7 follow a course of study to include The Romans and key aspects of Medieval History. Importantly, Year 7 involves a Local History Project that straight away allows the students to explore and learn about their local area.

In Year 8 the Students have an extra hour of history and study Tudor and Stuart Britain, the transatlantic slave trade, industrial Britain and the First World War.

Year 9 learning concentrates on World History from 1918 including the causes of World War Two, Nazi Germany and the Holocaust. The emphasis is on the skills developed in the learning and the progress made rather than course content alone.
