The History Department of Lode Heath School offers a diverse and interesting curriculum. We hope to support students in developing their wider understanding of the world we live in today through researching and learning about key events, people and developments through time. 


Students gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. Studying history inspires curiosity to know more about the past. Students are encouraged to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement. History helps students 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.
