In years 7 and 8 (KS3), all students have 3 hours of timetabled lessons over 2 weeks with a specialist History teacher. At the end of KS3 (depending on which Pathway students are on) many will have the option of choosing to study History at GCSE level. We follow the WJEC GCSE syllabus.


Department staff:

Miss H Turton - Curriculum Leader Humanities

Mr J McAuley – Assistant Headteacher & History teacher

Miss L Marshall – Head of Year 7 & History teacher

Miss R Murphy - Geography & History teacher




In Summer 2015 staff and students in Years 10 & 9 went on the 9th Battlefields Tour to Belgium and France, a WW1 heritage tour of significant places in Flanders and the Somme.
