GSO Test

'To help young people help themselves'

History

History at Adelaide School is planned to be engaging and promote enjoyment and curiosity.

The focus is on the development of knowledge and skills.

We cover British and worldwide History across time from the Stone-Age to the present day.

The curriculum plan includes all elements of the National Curriculum.

Pupils develop the skills to ask perceptive questions, think critically, analyse evidence, and develop perspective and judgement.

History helps pupils to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change,

the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups.

We believe History helps pupils better explore their own identity and the context of their lives today.

History is taught from Y5-Y9 for all pupils. Pupils complete an Entry level Qualification in Y9.

Pupils who have potential, and interest, in History are offered the opportunity to complete GCSE History.
