"All historical facts come to us as a result of interpretative choices by historians influenced by the standards of their age."  Carr

History is a popular subject in the school and the department gains very impressive results; in the last 8 years over 72% of our students have achieved A*-B grades at A-Level, with 8% of our students achieving the prestigious A* qualification compared to 5% nationally.  Many of our students go on to study History and related subjects at university.

"The essence of history is not the learning of facts but the judging of evidence."  Thompson
