At Palmers Green High School, we aim to inspire pupils to examine, question and, most importantly, appreciate the study of History. Targeted lessons, in small groups, encourage pupils to develop a positive attitude to the subject and to take enjoyment from and interest in historical events. Through the study of History, pupils acquire knowledge, confidence and invaluable study skills. By examining different accounts of historical events in detail, pupils hone their analytical ability and acquire sound study techniques which enable them to analyse and draw reasoned conclusions from recorded evidence. This enhances not only their historical understanding but can be invaluable when applied to their studies in all subjects.

Educational trips help to bring historical events to life, putting knowledge into context and as such, enrich the curriculum. At KS3 all year groups have the opportunity to participate in a History outing during the academic year.
