Ofsted Report September 2017 (extracts)

When questioning is carefully constructed and sequenced, it leads to pupils deepening their understanding of the subject and complex work is mastered, as in English and history.

In history, pupils make rapid progress due to the teachers’ strong subject knowledge.


Years 7 and 8

During Years 7 and 8 we offer a wide range of topics that will develop students’ understanding of British and world events.  This knowledge will support learning across the curriculum as well as their understanding of how the world works.  Whilst learning content for the topics the students will learn and apply historical skills that are essential for them to develop their literacy and communication.  History is linked to English and many other subjects across the curriculum

Year 9

In Year 9, students are introduced to GCSE, they study medicine through time.  This allows the students to access many of the time periods they have studied in Years 7 and 8 but with the focus of medicine only.  The students look at understanding of cause, treatment and prevention of disease from 1250 to modern day.

Years 10 and 11

In Years 10 and 11, students continue to follow Edexcel 9-1 GCSE History.  The students look at Weimar and Nazi Germany, Early Elizabethan England and Superpower relations and the cold war.

A Level

AQA GCE is offered in Years 12 and 13.  This comprises of three units: The Tudors 1485-1603, Weimar and Nazi Germany, 1918-1945 and a coursework unit based upon America.

These varied and exciting opportunities enrich our students and prepare them with transferrable skills that can be used in various career paths.
