History fires pupils’ curiosity and imagination, moving and inspiring them with the dilemmas, choices and beliefs of people in the past. Pupils develop their own identities through an understanding of history at personal, local, national and international levels. They will ask and answer questions of the present by engaging with the past. This curriculum will provide opportunities to investigate aspects of personal, family or local history. We appreciate the need for students to gain valuable learning experiences via diverse teaching and learning strategies. Students have opportunities to visit museums and historic sites across the stages, engaging pupils’ interest promoting transferrable skills for life beyond OBA. The curriculum encourages independent learning skills and the use of ICT to research the past, process historical data, select, categorise and to present their findings. Pupils investigate the history of their community, Britain, Europe and the world. Students develop a chronological overview to allow them to make connections within and across different periods and societies. OBA History lessons prepare students for the future, equipping them with knowledge and skills that are prized for adult life, enhancing employability. This curriculum offers a vast array of cross–curricular links between the Humanities and other subject areas.
