A Mead historian is a detective who investigates and asks questions about the past to understand how it has affected their lives today.


Our pupils will gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world.


Pupils will be able to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement.


To help deepen children’s historical understanding and develop their love for history, we create exciting experiences which allow children to relive the era they are studying. Such experiences include, themed days, visitors ‘from the past’ coming into school, school trips, investigating artefacts and using drama.
