Knutsford School

We take a lively approach to humanities, believing that investigating, debating, enquiring, and dramatising will stimulate children’s interest and develop their understanding.

Our aim in history is to excite children about the possibility of discovering the past for themselves, and engaging critically, creatively and empathetically with the beliefs, struggles, and achievements of the past, both in Britain and the wider world. We strive to recognise the legacies of history, both positive and negative, and encourage the children to make connections between then and now, here and there. We hope they will be amazed by wonderful things, thrilled by the excitement of exploration and invention, uplifted by triumphs, saddened by conflicts; but also learn to recognise the timeline of common humanity, fostering a sense of community cohesion.

We promote cross-curricular connections between the humanities, literacy, design and technology, the arts and P.S.H.E., and regularly enjoy themed days to enhance learning and have fun.
