Welcome to History at The Academy at St James!

Did you know that History is the foundation of our society? What we learn from the past informs our decision on the future. Mistakes can be corrected, successes can be replicated and to understand this is key to a caring, cohesive and inclusive United Kingdom.


At St James, we firmly believe that History is essential to our learning. Our History  intent is to provide children with the opportunity to engage and experience History.


History Intent March 2021

We have built a Curriculum that covers our 4 key Historocal Themes; Life of Society, Powerful People, Law and Order and Settlement and trade. We have organised it so for each subject matter they will learn and experience each theme.
