We firmly believe that the recipe for success is high quality first-wave teaching in History, which is central to the life of our happy, caring school.

The Best of the Best


Captain James Cook


Year 4 are currently learning about the English explorer, navigator, cartographer and captain in the Royal Navy, James Cook. He is famous for his voyages in the Pacific Ocean and his accurate mapping of it, as well as for his application of scientific methods to exploration.

Year 2 are currently learning about the history of their local area. They are making comparisons between past and present Stafford. They have talked about what Stafford has now and how this compares to the past. They have enjoyed looking at photos of the Market Square, High Street, Ancient High House, Stafford Castle and Victoria Park from the 1950's to the 1960's. 


Jade, "I wouldn't like to live in Stafford then because there wouldn't be many people around."

Jack, "I would have liked to have worked in a bank in 1965."

Natasha, "I would have liked to have lived in Stafford in 1965 because I would have liked to have tried the underground toilet."


Year 3 are busy learning about different attractions in our local area. They have visited the Ancient High House, Stafford Castle and Stafford Gatehouse. 

They have also had a special visit from Councillor Trowbridge to talk about the new refurbishments that are taking place at Victoria Park. 


Jude, "I liked the Ancient High House the best because it had lots of history. My favourite room was the attic because of all the facts about the war."


Lily, "I liked the Gatehouse because I have been there before and it was bigger than I remembered."
