KS3 Curriculum

The study of History at Key Stage 3 provides our students with the opportunity to experience over a thousand years of life in all its variety. They will learn about both ordinary people and extra-ordinary events; through lessons that are varied and interesting. Students will develop skills in handling historical sources and in expressing their views in written answers, considering argument and explanation. They will be encouraged to discuss and debate. The purpose of History at Key Stage 3 is not simply to know facts but to search for meaning in those facts and to develop skills that will be valuable in the future.
