History

Faculty Aims:

Learning History does not have to be about the past. History involves making links with human experiences which have shaped our modern world. In History we aim to engage student understanding through modern technology and provide a learning environment which challenges and offers students an opportunity to ask meaningful questions that are insightful and can show a deep understanding and empathy for past and present events.
