Our History syllabus aims to develop a variety of different life skills including visual and emotional literacy, citizenship and an understanding of cause and effect. We teach a well rounded and inclusive History curriculum that incorporates what we believe to be the best of the National and ISEB syllabuses.
We cover a variety of different periods of history, showing links and evolution of ideas from previous learning wherever possible. The periods studied are: Medieval, Tudor, Discoverers, Saxons, Vikings, Victorians, WWII, Ancient Egyptians and Greeks.
As a department we maintain that the philosophy of teaching History is to motivate and inspire pupils, to build their confidence and to achieve success and we try to make History at Windlesham an exciting, dynamic, relevant and active subject. Recent school trips have included visits to Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, Tangmere Military Aviation Museum and further afield to Hampton Court Palace, Fishbourne, the National Army Museum and the Imperial War Museum.
