History Co-ordinator - Mrs Heslop
Governor - Mr G Titmus

At St Botolph's, we love learning about the past and the teachers deliver this in exciting ways, bringing history to life.
In our lessons, we encourage children to investigate the past, understand key events and the impact they have had as well as comparing how people have lived in the past and in modern day life. The children get many opportunities through their school life to handle a wide variety of real artefacts. When possible we provide first hand opportunities and experiences from field work visits to bringing historical specialists in for workshops.

Please look at the photographs to see some of the 'History' in our school...
