Secondary Pathway 1

Secondary Pathway 1

The history curriculum at Secondary Pathway 1 is designed with pupils’ greater level of maturity in mind and will examine some more contentious issues. Topics that will be studied include:

  • Slavery and the slave trade
  • The Holocaust
  • The expansion of British influence across the world through British Empire
  • The civil rights movement in The USA
  • Migration to Britain throughout different time periods.

Pupils following this pathway will be expected to take more responsibility for their own investigations however. They will taught how to examine different sources of information and not to rely upon a single account as this may be biased.

Pupils will be actively encouraged to question sources of information and to verify their validity. As a consequence they will be expected to question accounts of events and the actions of groups or individuals; it may even be necessary for pupils to question and re-evaluate their own views and opinions.
