History

History is not a burden on the memory, but an illumination of the soul.

Lord Acton 

 

The History Department at Longfield Academy is committed to ensuring that all pupils make excellent progress in History through experiencing innovative and thoughtful teaching which engages and motivates them to succeed. It is our aim that pupils leave us as well rounded, global citizens equipped with vital skills that prepare them for the wider world, whether that be in continuing into higher education or the world of work.

Longfield pupils will learn to understand the past by developing their historical skills. They will gain a sense of time, chronology and their place in world history. They will develop important skills of identification, analysis and evaluation through examining historical evidence and sources with a critical eye. They will investigate issues affecting the world around them and people’s lives in the past, now and in the future.
