The objectives of the History department at BBG are based on a belief in the importance of history both as an academic discipline within the school curriculum, and as an important foundation stone for living a productive and successful life beyond the confines of compulsory education. The specific aims of the History department at BBG are threefold. Firstly, students should view history as a fun and interesting subject. All teachers within the department love and value the study of the past, and we want students to match this passion, generating an interest in the past that will remain with them for life. Secondly, we wish to transmit knowledge and understanding of the past, both within the UK and the wider world. Students should have an understanding of how the world we live in has been shaped by the past. Finally, it is our aim that students continuously develop life skills such as thinking, evaluating, analysing, empathizing and communicating; there are very few jobs that do not require these skills.
