History

“Those that fail to learn from history, are doomed to repeat it.”

Winston Churchill

The aim of History at the Bridge Education Centre is to not only better understand ourselves and learn from past mistakes, but to also develop critical thinking skills and communication skills vital for further education and future employment.

Students will gain knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. Our lessons aim to develop students’ abilities to ask perceptive questions, understand cause and consequence, weigh evidence, think critically, develop perspective and put forth arguments with carefully selected evidence. History helps 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.
