Subject Focus: History


History offers an exciting opportunity to explore the past and understand how events hundreds of years ago, help to shape and influence the world around us today.

Part of History is to understand why things happened, something that is not always straight forward, so you will need to use your skills of investigation in order to create your theories.

History is also the study of important individuals and how they have contributed to the world.  Not all of those we studyhave necessarily had a positive impact on people, their countries or the world, but it is important to study a range of people to understand the course of History.

History involves looking locally, nationally and globally to build a big picture.  History at Heart of England will involve all of this, challenge your thinking and help you develop skills that will stretch beyond the study of History.
