The workshop sets out thinking behind designing a truly stretching, appropriate and historically sound curriculum at KS3 which develops students’ knowledge and understanding, as well as ability to write historically – and avoiding the temptation to use GCSE-style AOs and questions. Looking at assessment, student outcomes, curriculum planning, support, stretch and challenge and how this can feed into success for all within the Ebacc and at GCSE.
