The History department is comprised of a group of passionate and enthusiastic educators that endeavour to make History relevant, enjoyable and meaningful to our students. History can be studied through Key Stages 3, 4 and 5.

‘To build up a future, you have to know the past.’ Otto Frank

The study of history at Lymm High School allows learners to develop their skills such as analysing evidence of the past, considering the significance of past individuals and events and making and supporting their own judgements. It also enables them to understand the world around them and prepares learners for their future lives.

History is also a subject that is well-respected amongst employers, universities and colleges/apprenticeships alike. This is due to its rigorous examinations and the skills such as analysis and evaluation that are learnt and practised within the subject.
