Our Vision

Romans 15:4 “For whatever was written in earlier times was written for our instruction, so that through perseverance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.”

History is the study of people over time. As witnesses to the past, it is our duty to share these stories to ensure that our pupils understand how the actions and attitudes of people of the past have shaped the world we live in. By stimulating curiosity and debate, we enable our pupils to question deeper and critically analyse so that they will know how their actions today can shape the future.

We believe, it is important to teach our pupils to remember, respect and be the voice of reason:

Remember the individual stories and ideas, in the context of some of the most significant events and developments in time. Take inspiration from the tenacity, determination and resilience of key individuals in the face of adversity.

By striving to be the voice of reason, students can reach informed judgements, be the voice of the forgotten, but most importantly be open to new ideas and possibilities.

“Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning." -- Albert Einstein
