A Hoyle Court Historian


“A generation which ignores history has no past and no future.”

(Robert Heinlein)


At Hoyle Court Primary School your child will study exciting topics such as Ancient Greeks, Romans and the Maya Civilisation.

History has always been held in high regard at Hoyle Court Primary, with the local area’s rich history (such as the industrial revolution), a celebrated and inspiring feature of the school. The history curriculum at Hoyle Court makes use of resources within the wider and local area enabling children to develop a deep understanding of the rich history of their surroundings. 

In line with the national curriculum, Hoyle Court aims to ensure that all pupils, regardless of ability gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. This helps to stimulate pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past; to encourage them ask perceptive questions, to think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments and develop perspective and judgement.

 Through history, children begin to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups, as well as their own identity and the challenges of their time.

 All our children leave Hoyle Court with a greater understanding of their past and where they fit into the bigger picture of the human story.
