The overall and most important aim of History teachers in the Prep is to foster a love of History and an interest in the subject which will inspire the children to want to know more, in terms of both breadth and depth of subjects being studied. At the top of the school we aim to send boys on to the Senior school full of curiosity and enthusiasm to know more about the past and its significance for today and tomorrow.
History is given a high profile in the Preparatory school, linking as closely as it does with boys’ cultural and academic development. All pupils receive History lessons at least twice a week.
It is important that pupils find History to be an interesting subject, and that they see its relevance to their own lives. Our aim is to make History fun and memorable, whilst laying the foundations for a thorough background knowledge upon which to build in other subjects and in further studies as pupils progress through the school.
