History underpins the essence of who we are, where we have come from, our place in society and our ability to understand events and issues in the wider world. The BMA curriculum is designed around the desire to give scholars a broad, representative history that reflects the community that we serve. The history curriculum is designed to equip our students with rich and powerful knowledge of the past and historical skills which will enable them to participate in rigorous academic debate. In history, our pupils learn about and develop a secure understanding of key events and issues of the local, British and wider world history.  We follow various threads throughout the curriculum which explore how people used to live, what they used to believe in, how they were governed and finally the evidence left behind allowing us to study each of those aspects of human activity. The mix of knowledge and skills covered in BMA history curriculum is intended to ensure that we contribute to the school intent of educational excellence for all and ensuring that students are ready for the next stage of education, are able to contribute to wider society and be able to shape the future for the betterment of all.
