“The historian without his facts is rootless and futile; the facts without their historian are dead and meaningless.” E.H. Carr, What is History?

Our History curriculum is designed to provide our students will the facts they need to be a strong, competent historian but also the skills in order to apply these facts. Our intent is that students can use their detailed historical knowledge to question the claim of others and to construct their own interpretations of the past.

The discipline of history is hugely valuable for all students. It enables them to understand the society around them through an awareness of the past, and also to challenge the narrative given by others. It enables them to be educated, confident, self-aware individuals. Our curriculum and the study of History at HCACP allows our students to be:

  • Culturally-responsive individuals: our curriculum is diverse, reflects our student body and supports our students in cultivating their own sense of identity alongside appreciating and respecting others' sense of self
  • Historians: our curriculum is rooted in subject discipline and we carry out the work of historians, reflecting the changing ideas and focuses within academic scholarship and answering the questions academic historians grabble with
  • Part of the conversation: our curriculum provides students with the cultural literacy necessary to be an active member of society and allows them to be global citizens based on their awareness and understanding of historical narratives from around the world.

Full details of the History curriculum intent, along with the long term curriculum plans are available to download from the bottom of the page.
