Handcross Primary


We aim to provide a high-quality history education which gives children a coherent knowledge and understanding of the past in Britain and the wider world and inspires pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past. We encourage children to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement. We believe that history helps pupils to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups, as well as their own identity and the challenges of their time. We regularly visit places of historical interest, including those in our immediate locality.
