History at Shuttleworth College aims to extend and deepen a student’s knowledge and understanding of British, local, and world history, so that it provides a well-informed context for wider learning.

Pupils are taught to identify significant events, make connections, draw contrasts, and analyse trends within periods and over long arcs of time. Our historical studies begin in 1066 and from that point cover a breadth of social, political, economic and religious themes leading up to and including events of the twentieth century. Students are encouraged to develop the ability to ask relevant questions about the past and to investigate them critically using a range of sources in their historical context. Crucially, they are taught to recognise that their historical knowledge, understanding and skills help them to understand the present and also provide them with a basis for their role as responsible citizens.
