Lower School (Key Stage 3)

Lower Primary School History Online


Key Stage 3 Cambridge History inspires pupils to be curious and fascinated about the history of world events and how they connect to today. Online school pupils deepen their chronologically secure knowledge and understanding of British, local and world history, towards a well-informed context for wider learning.


Teacher assessments are continuous during LIVE TAUGHT lessons, marking of coursework and assignments and summative tests.


Homework will be given at the end of each week, usually in the form of researching key concepts, quizzes for recapitulation and subject-related fun, completion of coursework.


Parents have 24 /7 access to all of their children’s coursework, grades and teacher feedback. Additionally, parents can arrange consultations with teachers at mutually convenient times.

Pupils identify significant events, make connections, draw contrasts, and analyse trends within periods and over long arcs of time. They use historical terms and concepts in increasingly sophisticated ways. They pursue historically valid enquiries including some they have framed themselves, and create relevant, structured and evidentially supported accounts in response. They are taught to understand how different types of historical sources are used rigorously to make historical claims and discern how and why contrasting arguments and interpretations of the past have been constructed.

  1. How significant was the Renaissance?
  2. Why did Europe divide during the Reformation?
  3. The French Revolution: Why did people fight and die for liberty?
  4. The emergence of the British Empire

Reading list/set texts to be decided.
