History at key stage 3 involves developing historical skills and processes such as evidential understanding, change and consequence, significance, similarities and differences as well as cause and consequence. We teach this through a variety of historical enquiries.
What do you need to be successful in this course?
To be successful a student needs to demonstrate detailed knowledge of periods studied in depth, as well as a wider knowledge of patterns over time.
