    History is a core subject for all students in S1 an S2. It is delivered through an integrated Social Studies course. The History based context involves learning around:

    • People, past events and societies

    Teachers draw on a range of approaches to meet the needs of students through carefully planned and well paced learning experiences. The aim is to provide a classroom climate of creativity and innovation, that will:

    • Develop in students an understanding of the history, heritage and culture of Scotland
    • Broaden understanding of human achievements and activities, in the past and present, across the world
    • Develop and understanding of students' own, and others, values and beliefs
    • Develop and understanding of democracy and citizenship
    • Develop skills of enquiry and investigation using different sources and evidence
    • Develop an understanding of concepts that encourage enterprise and influence business
    • Allow students to link people and events across time and place
    • Allow students to link people, events, features and places locally and further afield
    • Allow appropriate use of technology
    • Provide opportunities for collaborative and individual learning
    • Provide opportunities to analyse, explore and reflect

    In S3 students can opt into a History option aimed at Level 4 Experiences and Outcomes. This course is outlined in our S3 Course Choice Booklet.

    In the Senior Phase students can seek to gain qualifications in History from National 4 through to Higher level. Course outlines and entry requirements are available in our Senior Phase Course Choice Booklet.
