The Inclusive History curriculum at Queen Mary’s High School

Within our multi-ethnic and multicultural school that values the diversity of its pupils, their families and the wider community, the QMHS History Department is committed to an ever-evolving diverse and inclusive curriculum –  inside and outside the classroom.

We are life-long allies of this cause.  We stand arm in arm with all of the voices out there that are challenging educationalists to do more and to do it now.

Diversity is intertwined as a legitimate and valued concept in every single year group at QMHS, not just at A Level and not restricted to one ‘separated’ topic. It underpins our curriculum, assemblies, displays throughout the learning environment, our choice of speakers invited into school and our educational trips.  Of course, there’s so much more to do at school and in the world but the will, intention and energy is certainly there from our perspective.

We believe in teaching about past experiences in their historical and present-day context, in a bid to promote greater social identity and belonging, improve social cohesion and prepare our pupils for the wider world.
Therefore, the History Department is pleased to show you our latest edition of the curriculum (2019-21).

If you would like a more detailed breakdown of past or present curriculums and their connection to this important issue, please don’t hesitate to email the school and we can forward you some precise information.
