Ercall Wood Academy

Excellence through challenge and initiative


Our approach to history is based in nurturing curiosity and feeding the desire to understand why and how we came to be the Britain we are today. We get to explore the whole world. We learn about how countries were formed politically, socially, economically and who the key people were who built our ideas and nations. We travel around the world on our historical journey, learning about the early settlers here in Britain and the people who struck out across the seas and oceans to live in the Americas. We also find out about and question some of the darker times in our history when the British Empire was responsible for some appalling crimes against other nations of the world and we learn about the chaos within Europe and the wider world in the 20th Century.
