History/TVA Club

The Humanities and Technical and Visual Arts Departments run their own Stretch and Challenge cross-curricular History/TVA Club. Meeting after school, the club allows students to develop their research, historical and design skills, and have access to local historians, artefacts and trips, all of which support their learning and underpin the National Curriculum in Humanities and Technical and Visual Arts.
