History

Modern life reflects the themes in history; slavery, nationalism, genocide, revolution, religion and racism all allow for the expansion of a student’s cultural capital. The study of monarchy, republicanism, capitalism and communism allow students to understand the various styles of governance across the world and creates further understanding of the world that we live in.

History at Falmouth focuses on a context-rich and deep skills based curriculum, designed to scaffold learning which will allow for students to continuously develop deep knowledge and an expansive communication skills set. 

Students will develop the key concepts such as; significance, comparison, importance, change and continuity, cause and consequence, draw contrasts, analyse trends, frame historically-valid questions and create their own structured accounts, including written narratives and analyses.
