History plays an important part in education.  It is our aim, that through a knowledge of the past our pupils develop an awareness of the world in which they live and an understanding of the way in which people and society have interacted.


As it is the past that helps children make sense of the world in which they live, our pupils are taught about important events and developments in Tanzania and foreign history as well as being introduced to the world of ancient civilizations. We believe that it is important for our pupils to have a good understanding of chronology, historical concepts and vocabulary and, whilst facts are important, our pupils are also encouraged to make their own interpretations of the past based on a variety of sources and evidence. This includes use of contemporary writing, paintings, photographs, documents and historical reconstructions and re-enactments.
