At Ombersley we aim to provide a high-quality History education which will help pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. History aims to inspire pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past.  We equip pupils to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement. History helps pupils to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups, as well as their own identity and the challenges of their time. 

History is built into class termly topics.  One of these termly topics each year has history as its primary focus. Throughout the school British History and local history is explored
