Learning about the past at John E. Batty gives pupils the knowledge to make sense of the many aspects of the past they have inherited and gives them the necessary skills with which to interpret their history critically. Our History Curriculum places an emphasis on learning about the past through historical sources and through first hand experiences such as drama and visits to historical sites.
