History

History is a very popular subject at Lagan College. At Key Stage 3, students cover a wide range of topics, eg. the Norman Conquest in Year 8, Native American culture in Year 9 and significant events of the 20th Century in Year 10.

Through the teaching of History we encourage students to think for themselves, to appreciate the difficulties in building a picture of the past based on incomplete or distorted evidence and to understand that our interpretation of the past is sometimes influenced by our own prejudices or pre-conceptions. We encourage students to respect, value and celebrate their own culture and traditions and those of others. We believe that the study of History should be interesting, relevant, accessible to all abilities and fun!

History is offered at GCSE and A Level and students achieve excellent results.
