Rockwood Academy’s History Department aims to help students to understand the social, political, religious and economic conditions of people in the world today. The present is the child of the past, so examining the past helps us to understand the present.

  • Students to develop their knowledge and understanding of specified key events, periods and societies in local, British, and wider world history; and of the wide diversity of human experience.
  • Engage in historical enquiry to develop as independent learners and as critical and reflective thinkers.
  • Develop the ability to ask relevant questions about the past, to investigate issues critically and to make valid historical claims by using a range of sources in their historical context.
