All members of the Department are well qualified 历史 graduates who are full of enthusiasm for the subject and are proud of their ability to make the past come alive for our students.
The 历史 Department is proud to announce that in 2014 we have again been awarded the PTI Mark for
关键阶段3: maximum 30, 关键阶段4: maximum 28, Key Stage 5: maximum 20.
At 关键阶段3 they are taught in their form groups; and at 关键阶段4 and 5 in mixed ability groups based on option lines.
在关键阶段4 25％，并在关键阶段5 20％。
关键阶段3 is under review at the moment but we hope to announce some exciting outings very soon. At Key Stage 4 a visit is planned to the Thackray Medical Museum in Leeds for Year 10. For Year 11 the GCSE Controlled 评定 is based on a trip to Styal Mill. Every year or two a trip to Rome or Berlin is also organised for 关键阶段4 and 5 students.

关键阶段3 - 年7-9
The pupils are taught predominantly British history in a roughly chronological order.
In Year 7 this begins with the Norman invasion in 1066 through the Middle Ages to the Peasants’ Revolt in 1381 and the Lollards. This is followed by Henry VIII & Edward VI and the 英语 Reformation in the C16th.
In Year 8 pupils learn about the later Tudors; Mary I and Elizabeth I; the Stuarts, Charles I and the 英语 Civil War, 1625-49. The course continues with life during the Industrial Revolution and the Victorians, 1750-1900, focusing on economic and political change.
In Year 9 pupils learn about aspects of the Twentieth Century: the causes and effects of the First and Second World Wars, 1914-1945, and, time permitting, the Cold War after 1945 and the collapse of communism in the Soviet Union.
Learning history is no longer simply a timeline of significant dates, events and personalities. We aim to encourage pupils to think for themselves, to be objective and critically analytical. 学习 about the past is not simply a memory test; after all, our understanding of the past is based on interpretations which are subject to criticism and change.
Of course, we still learn about key events and individuals but there are also 4 themes which we keep coming back to during 关键阶段3.
Our themes are Changing Lives & Beliefs, Power & Protest, Conflict & Co-operation and Diversity.
We also focus strongly on historical thinking and historical skills especially extended writing and the analysis and interpretation of different types of evidence.
We do not teach everything in each of the periods but choose topics that are both fascinating in their own right, fit our themes and allow us to develop the pupils skills of thinking, writing and analysis.
历史 is not taught just using the textbook; particular interests and our expertise also allow us to pursue topics in more or less detail and to go off at tangents, often following the interests of the pupils. Nor are history lessons solely teacher led. All lessons are interactive and rely upon the input of pupils in discussions, role plays, class presentations and projects.
Reading & resources
We use the Longman Thinking Through 历史 series as our textbooks, which are ideal for both our thematic and skills led approach and full of great ideas to make pupils think, as well as really interesting activities and approaches to topics.
