Financial information

The History department prides itself in providing our pupils with an array of opportunities. For sixth form we run a residential trip during the October half term. In the past we have travelled with our sixth form historians to Moscow and St Petersburg, Krakow, Berlin and most recently a two centre visit to London and Paris. This year we are proposing a visit to Rome. This will include a visit to the Vatican as well as a focus on the ancient and modern history of Italy.

Future opportunities

A large percentage of our pupils go on to read history at University. History is extremely adaptable and is suited to a vast array of academic pursuits and professional occupations.
