History

HBAED_Image_Gallery_09

Our curriculum intent in History is to develop students understanding of the modern world, the society that they live in, the rights that they have and the role they have in the future development of society in order to produce well-rounded global citizens.

Students will develop a deep understanding of:

  • Key historical skills such as cause and consequences, and significance 
  • How society and individuals are governed both locally, nationally and globally
  • Gender equality
  • Civil and political rights
  • The long-lasting impact the 20th century has had on the modern day, including key events such as the Holocaust.

The History Curriculum is essential for developing key lifelong skills of analysis and evaluation as well as teaching fundamental knowledge that everyone should know. It gives students not only academic success in a rigorous subject but also the foundation of Active Citizenship values which combine to develop the Master Key to their future.

For more information on the History curriculum please contact Innovation Leader Oliver Walsh: O.Walsh@harrisdulwichboys.org.uk
