Welcome to the History department! As you come into year 9 you will study a range of new and exciting historical topics and concepts.
Autumn term – Enquiry, diversity, and impact of actions
In this theme we study the crime in Victorian England, looking carefully at why social issues contributed to the rise in crime in Whitechapel and the treatment of women. We also study the effects of the British Empire and Edwardian class systems leading in to the tragedy of Titanic and reasons for the disaster.
