History shows us that our decisions aren’t made in a vacuum, but build up from events stretching back until the dawn of time.

Ms Williams (Head of Humanities)

The study of History looks beyond the headlines, asks informed questions and expresses informed opinions. History involves not only the reconstruction and interpretation of the past, but is well regarded by employers as it is academically rigorous and can be relied upon to produce students who are literate and likely to be independent thinkers.
