pupils studying history

Curriculum Leader: Mr Waterworth

Our vision

We believe that through study, learning and teaching, History at Bloomfield Collegiate should:

  • Be relevant – it should develop in our pupils, the knowledge and understanding of the people and the world in which they live through the study of historically significant individuals and events in a local, European and World context.
  • Enable our pupils to develop as individuals, members of society and contributors to the economy.
  • Develop creative and critical thinking skills in our pupils’ approach to solving problems and making decisions.
  • Enable our pupils to become good communicators – orally, verbally and using Digital Technology.
  • Encourage our pupils to challenge stereotypical and biased viewpoints.
  • Stimulate and maintain our pupils’ interests in the past and encourage them to believe they can make a difference in the future.
