We are historians at St Margaret Ward.

We teach history because it is essential for understanding the past, present and future, as well as helping children to determine decisions now and later in life.

Our children will develop a chronological understanding of significant events and people and will be exposed to the diversity of human experience which will aid their understanding of society today.

Throughout each year group, every child will develop a range of transferable skills including critical thinking, historical enquiry and understanding of core concepts.

Our children are given the opportunity to learn about ancient civilisations all the way up to the historical figures and events in the 20th Century. This broad range of knowledge will facilitate the discussion of morals and ethics in the context of the modern world.
