Our Aims

The History Department is a very well regarded and highly successful department within Wilson's School. All students study History at Key Stage 3, which at Wilson's is a two year programme, and the subject is a popular options choice at both GCSE (with a three year programme of study) and A Level. At GCSE the department follows the new Eduqas specification. At A Level we follow the AQA specification.

  • Provide a high-quality history education to help pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world.
  • Inspire pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past.
  • Equip pupils to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement.
  • Help pupils to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups, as well as their own identity and the challenges of their time.
