History is a guide to navigation in perilous times. History is who we are and why we are the way we are.

David McCullough, American Historian

History and Politics at Farnborough Hill

History is the study of people who schemed and plotted, fell in and out of love, got angry and jealous, won and lost, lived and died – just like us.   What could be more fascinating?!  Focusing on key events and personalities from the last thousand years, pupils gain an insight into the forces which have shaped Britain and the Modern World.
