Key Stage 3
In KS3 our students cover the National Curriculum for History and study periods from 1066 to the present day. Our students develop the core skills that are required for GCSE and A Level history. These include the ability to critically assess the usefulness of primary evidence and to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of historians’ interpretations of the past. Students are also encouraged to consider both sides of the argument in order to present a balanced answer, which comes to a substantiated judgement about the past. Above all, we seek to challenge our students and enable them to be confident in developing their understanding and ability to form their own opinions about past people and events within the context of the time.
