History at Farringdon is devised to be both an engaging and rewarding experience for all of our students both at Key Stage 3 and 4. As historians we want the students to understand the past and the relevance that it has to everyday life. We use a wide variety of teaching and learning strategies which the students respond to in a positive way.
Throughout KS3 and KS4 we study:
Year 7: Battle of Hastings and 1066, Problems with Power, Women Power, Australia: Life Down Under and Underground in the North East
Year 8: Slavery, Abolition of Slavery, World War One, Russian Revolution and Europe: Invasion and Occupation
Year 9: Genocide throughout the Twentieth Century, Coming to Britain, Terrorism and Black Civil Rights in the USA.
At GCSE we follow OCR Modern World B specification. Pupils will complete 2 exam papers and a Controlled Assessment
