About Us

The History department has dynamic, exciting and seasoned teachers. As teachers, we all have a passion for our subject and the exciting opportunities and experiences it brings to our students.

Why study History

History should be studied because it is essential to individuals and to society, and because it shelters beauty. History helps us understand people and societies.  History helps us understand change and how the society we live in came into being. And most of all, it’s interesting!

Field Trips

Every year we arrange visits to local historical monuments so that the students can experience and learn from them.
