We study a wide range of exciting topics including Georgian history in Cockermouth, The Victorians, Space, America, The Anglo Saxons and The Gunpowder Plot through to the English Civil War. There are lots of practical projects and collaborative work as well as independent study to cater for the learning styles of every child and we endeavour to provide real life experiences in as many of our topic areas as possible.
