Curriculum Intent

Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it” Our vision with the curriculum at Grace Academy Coventry is to connect our students with the world through history, so they can participate in society as well-informed individuals, with a large emphasis on key British Values; such as democracy, tolerance, and law, as well as the school’s ethos. We do this by extending our students’ knowledge and understanding of key events in local, British and wider world history, as well as reflecting on the wide diversity of the human experience. We aim to develop independent learners who can think critically, reflectively and who engage in historical enquiry. At KS4, students can choose History as an optional GCSE, where they will sit three papers and cover a thematic study, a Period study, a British Depth study and a Modern Depth study.
