Academy Life

History

Our Vision:

Making sense of the past, understanding the present, shaping the future.”

At Erdington Academy we believe our students deserve a broad, diverse, ambitious history curriculum that prepares them well for life in the 21st Century. We focus on developing both the skills and knowledge to critically evaluate the world around us, enabling students to make informed decisions about the world they live in. We aim to inspire a life-long love of learning through history that enriches lives and transforms futures.

Our curriculum is chronological in nature and enables students to develop a sense of how people’s lives have shaped this nation, and how Britain has influenced and been influenced by the wider world. Students will develop inference and enquiry skills to examine concepts such as, cause and consequence,  change and continuity, whilst examining and weighing the significance of the driving factors behind them. These key concepts enable students to develop a critical and analytical mindset, where they can evidence their reasoning and make substantiated judgements in writing and orally.
