History at Tong covers a wide range of time periods, societies and concepts. Pupils will learn to deal confidently with chronology, change and continuity across time, and the idea of historical significance. They will develop critical analysis skills, learning to assess sources and infer meaning.
At Tong, we aim to provide engaging History lessons, tailored to the abilities of every pupil, to ensure young people develop a long-lasting love of history.
Understanding past events and people and their significance gives pupils a better insight into the world around them. We believe in the importance of not just learning history, but learning from history.
