History

We have designed our curriculum using the KS3 National Curriculum and it is delivered under the framework of the IB Middle Years programme. We have also referenced the KS2 Programmes of Study in our initial planning.

The History Department at Mascalls aims to immerse students in events of the past; to provide an understanding of local, national and global history which will enable them to understand their place in the world, and in the long story of human development. It aims to offer alternative perspectives to their own and to understand the personal histories of minority groups. They will gain a depth of knowledge as well as skills of enquiry and argument, through a curriculum which is designed to promote engagement, and prepare students for GCSE, A Level and future career progression.

The curriculum will encourage history students to engage with evidence and scholarship, and partake in debates that will drive and test new knowledge and their view of historical and contemporary events.
