Subject Leader: Mrs J Roe

The History department has a dedicated and supportive ethos matched with a deep and current understanding of the key events and ideas of the last 2000 years. We are committed to teaching and learning and aim to inspire our students to be curious about the study of the past.

All of our students need to know that the past is connected to the present and that historic events have a legacy that often lasts to today. Through the study of History, students will be equipped with the knowledge to understand how Britain has changed over time and how Britain influenced, and was influenced by, the wider world. It will also provide students with the skills to help them ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence and develop judgement.

Students at Astrea Woodfields will explore the complexity of people’s lives, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups, as well as the challenges of their time.
