The History Department at Lymm High School are proud to welcome you to our team of dedicated, committed and knowledgeable historians. Together, we are resolved to provide a first-class education to our students, whilst also offering extended opportunities for learning outside the classroom; through school trips, extra-curricular clubs, guest speakers and projects in conjunction with the schools Scholars Programme.
The aim of our History curriculum is to provide learners with a core foundation of knowledge that enriches their understanding of their world.

We deliver content that promotes a natural inquisitiveness for the way the world has come to be, and facilitates an appreciation of the achievements, losses, and struggles and moral contexts of our predecessors. Our curriculum aims to provide an avenue for pupils to study social, political, economic, cultural, and women’s history.

A rich History curriculum recognises that there are many unique interpretations of our past – there is not one way of studying history, no more that there is just one valid perspective – and equips pupils to develop their own perspectives on topics of historical study.

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.

We hope you find the information listed here useful but please get in touch if you have any further questions.
