Detail

This Ofsted survey report is based principally on evidence from inspections of history between April 2007 and March 2010 in 166 maintained secondary schools in England.

Part A focuses on the key inspection findings in the context of rising standards since the previous report in 2007.

Part B discusses some of the key issues facing history teachers and describes the essential components of effective learning in history. Both parts of the report give examples of good practice.
