History education will ensure pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world with a focus on chronology. We will inspire pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past. Pupils will be encouraged to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement.

Curriculum Map

History studies shows students how our world has evolved, it gives individuals an understanding of their place and identity in our ever-changing world. It helps them understand how the past has shaped our present and influences our future. Students identify key features of empires that help explain their rule over the ages, it helps them to understand similarities and differences and unique characteristics of cultures and places.

At Key Stage Two, children start their history lessons looking at the ancient civilisations. Throughout Year 5, the children study Ancient Egypt, Ancient Greece and The Maya. In Year Six, Victorian Britain, The British Empire and a depth study of the local area are the focus.

The history studied at KS3 focuses on Britain from 1066 through to modern world history. They identify the role of power and influence and the changes during the Industrial Revolution and 20th century wars.

Throughout KS2 and KS3 we strive to build on prior learning and focus on concepts; chronology, interpretation, inference, source analysis, change and continuity, similarities and differences and finally cause and consequence. Students revisit them continually to build a depth of knowledge and understanding to give students a secure base for their progression to high school.


At KS2 children have a core assessment at the end of each unit. These are combined with the work produced in their books to reach a judgement on attainment and progress.

At KS3 children have 6 core assessments over the academic year, together with their day-to day work in lessons.  This is used to judge attainment and progress, therefore allowing targets to be set.
