"Working together to make everything better"

Humanities

KS3 follows a two-year rolling programme, which is tailored to student need. The programme of learning is focused on History and aims to provide students with a secure foundation of historical knowledge, a clear grasp of key historical concepts and an appreciation of how historians work. Topics are studied with a chronological underpinning to develop sense of period and are driven by enquiry questions rooted in historical scholarship.
