Have you have wondered why Henry VIII had six wives or why the French Revolution happened, or whether the holocaust could happen again?  In the space of just three years in KS3, we cover the main highlights of British, European and world history from 1066 to 1991.

The history curriculum at Leigh Academy Tonbridge holds at its centre the belief that “The more you know about the past, the better prepared you are for the future.” (Theodore Roosevelt). Our curriculum allows pupils to analyse the past and evaluate some of the key events, people and changes that occured, in order to draw their own conclusions about these topics and apply the lessons learnt from them into their own lives and the world around them.
