Our History curriculum aims to inspire curiosity and develop a desire to never stop wanting to find out more. Young people need a sense of history in order to understand themselves, their identity and the world around them. They need to be able to ask questions and evaluate the answers they receive – never settling for a shallow answer and pushing for a deeper explanation that will enhance their understanding of the world around them.
