The study of History at STAHS is exciting and wide reaching. At Key Stage Three, our girls explore a broad chronology ranging from Medieval England and industrial Britain to the World Wars, as well as the rise and fall of the Berlin Wall. Through these compelling narratives they develop key historical skills including essay writing and drawing inferences from primary sources. Our students benefit from inspirational teachers who enthuse, challenge and support the girls to become budding historians.

Beyond the History classroom, we provide an array of stimulating educational visits, including day trips to the WW1 battlefields and the Black Country Museum and a residential trip to Berlin. At every key stage, girls are encouraged to develop academic scholarship and the department promotes independent learning through clubs and discussion groups available to all.

The short film below features some of our students explaining why they get involved in the school History Club:
