The West London Free School history curriculum allows pupils to build a substantive and essential body of knowledge of both British and international history, playing an important part in a pupil’s cultural literacy. Our curriculum will also ensure pupils are building the disciplinary knowledge of an historian’s trade; for example, studying conflicting interpretations of the past or learning to draw conclusions from a diverse evidence base.
Consequently, our KS3 curriculum provides pupils with an extensive narrative of British history. This KS3 curriculum aims to build a foundation of knowledge essential for greater specialisation within our OCR Modern World GCSE and both Medieval and Modern A level options. Likewise, from Year 7 pupils will begin to learn the skills of an historian vital for success at GCSE and A level.
