Hello, I'm Ruth Lingard, one of two curriculum leaders for history at Millthorpe School in York. Millthorpe is an average-sized secondary school with a below average proportion of students eligible for the pupil premium. Millthorpe includes an average number of students with special educational needs among its intake and most students are from a white British background. The school has close links with the wider community and we in the history department take part in this. Students at the school make good progress. 

We have recently been visited for a history subject inspection and the findings of this also contribute to all of the key areas of the Quality Mark framework.



We really appreciated the rigour of the Quality Mark assessment and I think with new lighter touch Ofsted's and the breakdown of regional subject networks, the Quality Mark is going to fill a really useful professional development hole!

We hope you enjoy reading this case study of our experience along with a selection of examples taken from our full portfolio.
