History

At Wigton Moor we believe we have a high-quality history education that will help pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world.  Our teaching aims to equip pupils with the knowledge to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement. 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.
