Trips and Visits
The History Department firmly believes in allowing the pupils to experience History first hand in order to help bring it to life and deepen their historical knowledge, understanding and love of the subject. Throughout KS3 there are opportunities to visit Carrickfergus Castle, the Somme Centre and Crumlin Road Gaol. Pupils have also been on field trips to Dublin, France and Belgium to visit the WWI Battlefields and Berlin, Germany.
History provides a wide range of high-order, transferable skills. In the past pupils who have studied A Level History have pursued careers in Accountancy, Business and Finance, Retail Management, Town Planning, Medicine, Dentistry, Veterinary Science, Primary and Secondary School teaching, Politics, Law, Policing and many other areas.
