Curriculum Intent Statement:

Our vision for history at Thorpe St Andrew School and Sixth Form is to create challenging, inclusive and fascinating history lessons every day. We want students to have a chronological understanding of British and World history from 1066 to the present day that will develop fundamental concepts and skills including change, continuity, significance, comparison and source analysis enquiry.

We also want students to develop a critical understanding of historical events, people and institutions and be able to form substantiated historical arguments with confidence and respect.

We also want students to examine who has recorded history and for what motivation, understanding that history affects themselves and the wider global community they live in and also that this history can be contested. We want history at Thorpe St Andrew to spark an intellectual curiosity at the beginning of what we hope is a life-long journey into the study of the past.
