History

Curriculum

“At South Norwood we believe the study of history should provide students with a complex and diverse knowledge of the past through an exploration of primary and secondary sources. It should provide students with the tools to recognise that although the past is unalterable, its history is not fixed and is subject to change. The study of history should therefore give students the conceptual framework to think critically, to distinguish between claim and opinion, to form arguments and make reasoned judgements based on the weight of evidence. It should provide students with the knowledge to locate themselves in the present and to understand the inescapable relevance of the past. Our mantra for our curriculum is ‘Accept nothing, question everything’”.
