We study history in order to:

– Develop our own understanding of how the past has brought us to the present day and therefore know that we can shape the future 

– Become critical thinkers, who analyse and weigh up evidence

– Evaluate interpretations, because history is a series of arguments, is ever changing and often contested

– Empathise with different groups of people in different periods but also to see ourselves in the past and therefore develop our sense of identity
