History informs us about how the world we live in has been shaped

History is a study of the actions of mankind and an explanation of why events were caused and the consequences of them. History at The Oratory supplies students with a range of transferable skills that are highly sought after. Pupils will develop their powers of argument, of selecting and evaluating evidence and opinions, of determining importance and significance. These skills are invaluable in future study and in a variety of careers where writing reports, analysing situations, and presenting arguments are required.

Think critically and creatively

We are committed to helping pupils explore significant events, individuals, and ideas, while developing essential skills. At every level, pupils are challenged to think critically and creatively, to work collaboratively, and to understand the power of all forms of communication.
