Ofsted good practice example showing how Copleston High School ensures history meets students’ needs, aspirations and interests.
The Key Stage 3 history curriculum is distinctive and highly imaginative. It meets students’ needs, aspirations and interests exceptionally well, and twice as many students opt to study history in Key Stage 4 than is seen nationally. This is principally because the curriculum ensures that students have an excellent understanding of history’s relevance to their own lives by providing them with a detailed insight into how the local community fits into a wider national and international history.
