“Things that are said are said, and cannot be unsaid. Things that are done are done and cannot be undone!”


 To foster an interest in History.

         To encourage the pupils to see the relevance of History to their everyday life

  To cultivate a sense of location, a knowledge of places and a respect for different     cultures.

         To encourage open, enquiring minds that are aware of contemporary issues.

         To place emphasis on the development of learning skills.

It is clearly the aim of the History Department to develop the academic potential of each pupil, successfully and enjoyably.  The word ‘enjoyably’ is important.
