Welcome to History

At Tibshelf Community School all students study History in Years 7, 8 and 9 and they can opt to study it in Years 10 and 11 for GCSE. History at the school is recognised as an important and essential part of the curriculum, especially in light of the introduction of the English Baccalaureate.

In History lessons students learn about the past through a variety of teaching and learning strategies. Lessons aim to be engaging but they are also centred on building students’ knowledge, understanding and the skills needed for GCSE. This will then provide a solid basis for post 16 development.
