Here at Norton Canes, our mission is to instill a love of learning and foster a sense of curiosity about the past, for all our pupils. We pride ourselves on being Historians that culture a love of learning in the classroom.
Our current History team have specialism and particular interest in topics such as Elizabethan England, The Cold War and Medicine through Time (these topics we cover at GCSE). We encourage looking at the wider world when studying History. We cover every continent during a pupil’s time at NCHS and display a range of opportunities where pupils can use what they have learnt in class in other subjects and in their daily lives. In addition, we promote a strong aspiration for success in all that we do, providing resources in class and online in various formats to aid every learner in our school.
