Welcome to History

As Historians we are passionate about the study of History and we strive to pass this enthusiasm on to students through dynamic and engaging learning. In order for us to understand the world around us today it is vital that we understand the past, and the developments and changes that have shaped the world in which we live. The History curriculum studied by students at Outwood Academy Brumby is creative, historically rigorous and covers a range of thrilling themes such as conflict, politics and society. In one academic year students can expect to learn about incredibly diverse topics and will be able to answer increasingly complex enquiry questions.
