St John's C of E Middle School Academy


History is an important and exciting subject for our pupils to learn. Their curiosity is easily fired when encouraged to consider the colourful, amazing and sometimes shocking events from our past.

We guide pupils towards developing an enquiring mind, so that they can find out about ancient societies, empathise with the way people used to live and consider for themselves the influences and connections with our modern age.

During their four years at St John’s Academy, pupils will obtain a greater chronological understanding and increase their historical knowledge. Developing our understanding is useful, but only becomes truly meaningful and ‘fun’ to our young historians, when they use this to enquire further and communicate their own ‘unique’ views of the past.
