The History Department aims to develop the historical skills and knowledge of all our pupils, and prepare them to be citizens who are knowledgeable about their heritage. We want to develop enthusiastic historians who understand their history as Welsh individuals, British individuals and as a member of the wider world. Our curriculum, which follows a chronological structure, ensures that our pupils study a variety of significant periods and events such as the Middle Ages, the Industrial Revolution, the World Wars and the Holocaust. The aim of these themes is to ensure that our learners develop an understanding of how the world around them came into being and where they fit into this story. As a department we work hard to develop the pupils’ commitment by providing interesting and lively lessons which focus on the big discussions of History.
