Subject lead: Mr Reed

At Weavers the History department has designed a curriculum to spark and nurture our students’ interest and enthusiasm for, History. Our aim is for students to be able to develop a sense of different historical time periods by being able to identifying key events and individuals who played a significant role in large scale historical changes such as; feudalism  to democracy, the Industrial revolution and political and social movements such as suffrage and the abolition of the slave trade. With this knowledge we believe students will be able to develop a good contextual understanding of present-day issues and concerns within both Britain and the wider world. We believe that this crucial aspect of student’s learning, will help them become successful and responsible citizens.
