History

The History department consists of 2 members of staff:

Mrs Forbes and Miss Thores. ( Mr Johnstone is the Faculty Head overseeing the History department).

In History, we have a passion for our subject and we hope to enthuse the pupils with this same interest.  Our aim is to help pupils become more confident in their knowledge of history which will help them make sense of events happening in the world today.

Through the variety of topics that we investigate, pupils are able to develop a good understanding of Scottish, British and World History from S1 to S6.

We place great emphasis on learning skills including investigation, evaluating and analysis.  By looking at topics ranging from slavery and medicine to WWII and the Treaty of Union, the subject encourages pupils to frame discussions and present points of view. These skills will help the pupils find success in other subjects as well as beyond school.
