Walk towards the future facing the past

Welcome to History at SEHC. History is the subject where you learn about the past, to help you understand the present, so that you can prepare for the future.
It is a subject which helps you to think, analyse. debate and question why things are the way they are. It teaches you research and presentation skills and to understand perspective, to walk in other people’s shoes.

The skills you develop and practice in History will be invaluable in many careers including journalist, lawyer, researcher, presenter, teacher; in fact any profession where you have to think!

You will learn these skills through reading, writing, viewing, role-playing and presenting.

Other:
Each year, in each History 1, II, III, there is a field trip to a place where history happened, so that we can stand on that land and imagine the past events.

Career Pathways with History

Any career where you need to use the skills of analysis, logic, perspective, research, and presentation: eg researcher, journalist, lawyer, teacher,….the list goes on!

Other: History is an accredited University subject, and one that can be used if an arts subject is asked for.

If you have any other concerns or questions please ask Mr Bain or Miss Malpas.
