At Brookmans Park School we intend to provide pupils with a high-quality education in History that stimulates our pupils' curiosity of the past and equips them with the skills to think and act as an historian such as to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments and develop perspective and judgement to gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. At Brookmans Park School we provide our children with a range of life experiences and expand their understanding of the world they live in. We believe it is important for children to develop a sense of identity through learning about the past and to know how history has shaped their own lives.
