Ancient history


​In Ancient History people ask meaningful questions, collect evidence, sift through it, analyse and evaluate it, to produce satisfactory answers to problems of living. These answers provide a context for our own lives and establish a range of values that shape our attitudes, beliefs and behaviours.  We can understand how the modern world has been influenced by the peoples and achievements of the distant past and how the processes of change and continuity have shaped today’s world. We develop understanding through critical inquiry, debate and reflection, and through empathetic engagement with the standpoint of others. Ancient History is rich in wonderful stories of human endeavour, achievement and disaster.
