History

Studying the past to give insights into today

  • A wide ranging curriculum
  • Engaging topics across the ages
  • Explore new points of view

Studying the past can give you a real insight into people and politics of today. Here at Honiton Community College we aim to give a wide-ranging curriculum in all respects. History is about people, which is what life is about. As an individual it is important to understand the world in which we live. History looks at art, psychology, geography, economics, sociology, science, literature, politics, individuals, national cultures and more.

 "History is important because we are the past: we are the sum of all the events - good, bad and indifferent - that have happened to us. In the History department, we aim to give students a broad experience as possible."Mr Dagger - Head of Humanities
