All things are possible for one who believes – Mark 9:23

At Waverley Abbey we aim to develop world aware historians who are able to understand and appreciate a wide variety of historical time periods and cultures from different viewpoints. We aim to equip children with the skills and tools to enable them to delve into historical times in creative and immersive lessons. We encourage the children to think reflectively and critically to examine sources of information. A Waverley Abbey historian will develop a growth mind-set and strive to achieve their best in all they do.

Pupils' understanding and enthusiasm for History is further enriched by our many school visits which have a history focus as their starting point, for example Butser Ancient Farm and Fishbourne Roman Palace and by special themed days in each Year Group, such as Roman Day, Greek Day, Tudor Day and Evacuee Day as well as many cross curricular links to other subjects.
