History

Subject Leader:

Mrs C. Pickering

About the subject:

History is the study of people and the world we know. It is the exciting story of humans across thousands of years and encompasses everything humans have done – good and bad. It helps us understand where we have been and potentially where the world is moving to. History gives us an opportunity to learn from and understand the successes and mistakes of the past.
