History and Geography

These subjects are taught in a cross-curricular way ensuring both historical and geographical skills and knowledge is taught.  We encourage the children’s interest in the local and wider environment and to this end, we include studies of the locality and links with our European and global neighbours.


Residentials in Years 3 to Castleton and in Year 6 to Whitby strongly support teaching in both History and Geography.
