The intent of our History curriculum is to explore a broad range of past events and people so that students gain a deeper understanding of the world in which we live today.

We also endeavour to ensure that we instil in all students the fundamental skills of a historian, such as the power of persuasion, the ability to analyse critically a range of materials, and how to effectively unpick causation.

The curriculum will also ensure that the content covered is reflective of the cultural richness of Peckham and wider London. Ultimately, we aspire to provide students with the skillset required for them to become effective critical thinkers whilst possessing an understanding of the key events that have shaped their local, national and global surroundings.


Students will be exposed to a broad curriculum that covers a wide expanse of topics and time. They will engage with a range of sources in KS3 that challenge them to struggle with the skill of critical analysis. KS3 will also see students cover medieval, international and local history to provide a grounding for students of a broad window of time. Events and individuals that are studied will be selected carefully to ensure that they explore the cultural richness that is our intention in the curriculum. Within the curriculum we will also embed opportunities for students to engage with the rich vein of history that London has to offer through various trips and internal visits.


Students will be able to speak confidently about the key past events that have impacted our society today. They will demonstrate an ability to evaluate information effectively and to use this in verbal and written responses whilst using a range of accurate historical vocabulary. Students will be confident in their ability to reach their own judgements and justify their reasoning for this.
