History is taught throughout the school by both form and specialist teachers. It is a perennially popular subject with children of all ages who are genuinely fascinated by the past. In the Upper School each form has a double lesson of History every week. In the Lower School Within the subject is taught as part of a topic and may often form part of the literacy syllabus.

We aim to bring history to life with various trips and special events for all year groups and we organise, for example, visits to Stratford-upon-Avon, Hitchin Victorian School, Hatfield House and Montfitchet Castle.
