We believe that the study of History is an integral part of a child's education. It promotes an understanding of the modern world by examining the past. The study of History provides the pupils with the opportunity to appreciate human achievement and frailty, how their world has been shaped, the development of social customs, values and attitudes. History at Marston Vale is a vibrant, constantly developing subject taught with passion and sensitivity. Emphasis is put upon the transferable skills and literacy. Pupils learn how to structure their work in a way that should continue to be useful to them throughout their lives.
