Kingswood Secondary Academy

Ofsted Good


Four teachers deliver the History curriculum at Kingswood. History will challenge you to consider and analyse evidence to form your own opinion on the past and its significance. History will teach you to formulate an argument and use evidence to justify your opinion. The skills learnt in History will help you to understand the country you live in, how and why it was formed and is governed. You will also gain an appreciation of how events internationally have shaped the world we live in today.
