 'Those who can not remember the past are condemned to repeat it' - George Santayana

At Tewkesbury School we aim to give students a broad and varied study of History.  We explore the important events and themes in British and world history from the past 1000 years.

Through the study of historical events, students will become curious and independent learners.  A range of communication skills are encouraged so that students can convey their understanding in a variety of ways.  Examining historical evidence, analysing sources and reaching balanced and well supported arguments are at the heart of what we learn about in the subject.

Students will explore the subject through a variety of learning activities both inside and outside of the classroom at Tewkesbury School.  Our pupils learn about history using a range of skills and media.  Their studies are enhanced by the opportunity to visit the Imperial War Museum and site-seeing in Italy in a joint KS4 trip with the Geography Department.  All of these enrichment activities help to bring the past to life for our students.
