The aims of History at Grange Park are that pupils should enjoy the subject, get satisfaction from the work that they produce and gain a basic understanding of the history of the United Kingdom and its place in Europe and the wider world.

Our Year 5 & 6 pupils have History for 3 terms of the academic year and the remainder is split with Geography.

In Years 7, 8 and 9, history is taught as a discrete subject.  In Years 10 and 11, it is taught as an optional subject where pupils work towards a GCSE. In all years, class work is reinforced with field trips, where possible, and practical activities.
