history1Mr G Coyle (HOD)

History is the study of the past. In our study of the past we find out about:

At The High School Ballynahinch we teach our pupils to think for themselves; to appreciate the difficulties in building a picture of the past using incomplete or biased evidence, and to understand that our interpretation of the past is sometimes influenced by our own prejudices or pre-conceptions.

We encourage our pupils to respect, value and celebrate their own culture and traditions and the culture and traditions of others.

We believe that the study of History should be interesting, relevant, accessible to all abilities and fun.

The history department is implementing the revised curriculum in years 8 and 9, with greater emphasis on thinking skills and  personal capabilities..
