HPS- History Curriculum Aims

  • Develop within children the understanding of Britain’s past coherently, along with that of the wider world.
  • Develop critical thinking, inquisitive questioning and use of various forms of sources to weigh up evidence and interpret the meaning.
  • History helps children understand how the past has shaped the cultural diversity of Britain and the world today.
  • Specialist history teachers deliver all history lessons throughout the academic year.


Children learn about the events of the past and what causes and changes have come from History. They will look upon the complexity of History and disseminate information accurately and critically, thus developing their aspirations and creating confident, resilient learners.

At HPS, children develop critical thinking and independence through topics in school, encouraging them to be more self-aware of events that are happening today and look at what we can learn from the past, which, in turn, helps our children to develop their understanding of the world. Through learning about the world’s historical events, its changes and the impact it had on the people who lived in that time, children can see how the past has shaped the world and how their lives have been enhanced by learning from the History of yesterday.
