The study of History is the beginning of wisdom.

– Jean Bodin

History helps us understand the world we live in today; as Marcus Garvey said “A people without the knowledge of their past, origin and culture is like a tree without roots.”

At Orley Farm we aim to inspire our pupils with the events, people and inventions that have shaped the modern world. Pupils learn to research, question, communicate and make sense of the complexities of Great Britain and its place in the world. Our goal is for all pupils to be fascinated by the past and to be prepared to be successful adults who will make a positive difference to the communities they live and work in.
