Welcome to the History Department
The History Department at Altrincham College attempts to fire students' curiosity and imagination, moving and inspiring them with the dilemmas, choices and beliefs of people in the past, and ultimately leading them to discover and evaluate how these events have shaped and evolved the society we live in today.

The department team consists of three members of staff. These are:
|Ms L Mathers||Head of Department|
|Mr R Smith||Teacher of History; Head of learning Yr 10|

History helps students to develop their own identities through an understanding of the subject at personal, local, national and international levels.
It enables them to ask and answer questions of the present by engaging with the past. Teachers communicate infectious enthusiasm for the subject.
The Departmental motto is to "engage, enquire and encourage."
