At Royal Liberty we believe that history is an important part of every student’s identity. We work hard to create a varied curriculum which meets the needs of our school community and we pride ourselves on staying at the forefront of new thinking in history education. Our Key Stage 3 curriculum is enquiry based with a 'Big Question' driving each of our units. Through these questions, we hope to help our students to understand Britain's place in the world, encourage an enquiring mind and help pupils to explore past societies and issues with curiosity and confidence. We use our three year Key Stage 4 to push our pupils beyond the exam board specification and develop fuller and richer understanding of the past.
We prepare students for not only future historical study at Key Stage 5 and beyond but also aim to shape them into critical thinkers with the skills to understand the world around them.
Key Stage Three
We pride ourselves on a modern, varied and exciting curriculum which is constantly evolving. We are fortunate to offer 5 hours of history a fortnight at Key Stage 3 and thus we are able to offer a rich and complex curriculum.
Key Stage Four
Over the years of KS4 we will cover the following topics; Weimar and Nazi Germany, Early Elizabethan England, Migrants in Britain and Superpower Relations and the Cold War. Our exam board is Edexcel and our subject is entirely exam based (sat at the end of Year 11).
