By delving into the past Historians are endowed with the skills to uncover our present and future, making History the ideal subject for the Twenty-first Century student. Through the exploration of History we aim to empower our students, giving them a unique understanding of the world in which they live. In doing so the History Department will enable its learners to achieve a whole host of skills which can be found at the very heart of our Curriculum for Excellence, namely:

  • Developing an understanding of the history, heritage and culture of Scotland, and an appreciation of local and national heritage within the world.

  • Broadening students understanding of the world by learning about human activities and achievements in the past and present.

  • Developing an understanding of various values, beliefs and cultures.

  • Exploring and evaluating different types of sources and evidence

  • Learning how to locate, explore and link periods, people and events in time and place.

  • Engaging in activities which encourage enterprising attitudes
