Curriculum

History

Welcome to the History curriculum page.  

History at Hyde High School is taught as a discrete subject within the Humanities faculty. The purpose of our KS3 curriculum is to give students (mostly chronological) knowledge and understanding of the significant people, events and developments and their impact.  Within this there will be depth studies with a thematic focus on power, beliefs and ordinary lives, as well as broader overviews to support chronological understanding. 

We aim to inspire a love of History and want to develop passionate historians and independent learners who seek further knowledge, value hard work and education and want to ask questions.  Our KS3 curriculum also aims to provide a good foundation and smooth transition for those who opt for GCSE with a focus on significance, explanation of causes, change and continuity, and consequences and main factors as well as developing the skills and understanding of sources and interpretations. We want our students to be able to communicate enthusiastically and knowledgeably about the past and aim to develop high levels of written and verbal communication, as well as the confidence to argue their points convincingly.
