The History Department at George Salter Academy is a strong team who are passionate about their subject and the skills and opportunities that the study of History can offer students. We have five full time subject specialists in the Department - Mr Wolffel, Mrs Allen, Mrs Fasham, Ms Williams, Mrs Field and Ms Digpal.
We give George’s students the opportunity to study a wide range of historical events, time periods and individuals with a focus on developing the use of literacy, the ability to interpret and debate, as well as supporting students in improving the skill of enquiry and source analysis.
The GSA History Department’s vision is to develop pupils’ intellectual curiosity, learn about who they are and the past of humankind, as well as become responsible, informed citizens of the worldAs part of this we aim for history to teaches key knowledge, key skills and broaden horizons whilst trying to make the subject fun and engaging!
The History Department offers a number of study support sessions for students across different year groups. Key Stage 4 and 5 students are well supported in preparation for their examinations with after school revision and twilight sessions.
