History at CCHS
In the lower school history is taught through themes such as migration, settlement, cultural beliefs and conflict and co-operation. These allow pupils to look at the development of political power, the relationship between the countries making Britain as well as the concepts of trade, colonization, changing technology, Empire and others. Pupils will develop the skills of analysis, an understanding of causation and consequence as well as being able to look at different interpretations of events. They will be able to communicate their ideas and be able to see how the past has helped to create their identity both at a personal, local and national level.
