Our aim is to provide pupils with an interesting and relevant learning experience. With the ability to discuss current affairs and relate them to historical events.
Providing pupils with a wide range and varied curriculum which provides a balanced History diet, including pre 1066, British, wider world and local History. Extra-curricular trips include visiting the Motte and Bailey Castle in Weobley at KS3 and a tour of Shrewsbury Prison at KS4.
Pupils have 1 hour of History in year 7 and two hours in year 8 and 9. At KS4 pupils have 2/3 hours of History. KS4 pupils study the Edexcel GCSE syllabus. Please see the department’s learning journey for a full list of topics studied throughout KS3 and KS4.
