Curriculum Intent

At Polam Hall School our History curriculum aims to:

Enable pupils to 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.

At GCSE students follow the Edexcel specification. Further details can be found using this link:
