History has always been an exciting and inspiring subject for students. It allows them to understand the world we live in nowadays through comparing it to the world our ancestors lived in. At Tiverton High School we strive to make History relevant to all students across both Key Stages by focusing on case studies of ordinary people as well as the great figures from History. This enables students to connect more readily with the past as they can relate to the experiences of people similar to themselves. As a Department we are always looking for students to work independently and lead enquiries into deep and complex issues within the subject, with advice and guidance from their teachers. All of this creates an extremely positive learning experience for all History students with students showing a real passion for the subject and desire to achieve.
