Key Stage 3 History

Our exciting Key Stage 3 curriculum covers a wide range of topics in order for students to understand how and why the world is as it is today.  Each topic features a key question so that student thinking is challenged and focussed.  In History, we study the past and the legacies of the past in the present.  History is so relevant in today’s world, it is inescapable.  According to www.history.ac.uk, History is far from being a ‘dead’ subject; it helps us understand the condition of being human!  Therefore, History is not just ‘useful’, it is essential!’
