History

In History we aspire to provide outstanding lessons for our students that inspire them and instil in them the sense of community that is at the heart of the Chase Terrace Academy ethos. History is a subject that can help to develop this sense of community as it is a study of our shared past. We feel that it is vital that students have the opportunity to learn about how our country and communities were formed and shaped. Students experience a wide range of lesson activities that cater for all learners’ needs. At the heart of all we do is the aim to inspire a lifelong love of History and learning. Our aim of providing outstanding lessons also helps us to prepare students in the best ways possible to gain valuable qualifications that will benefit their futures.
