The History Department at Dubai College has a long track record of outstanding achievement in public exams at both GCSE and A-level. The History Department is housed in the school’s A Block and is well resourced, with all classrooms featuring interactive whiteboards. There are currently seven members of the History Department, all of whom are specialist historians.
Teachers aim to provide knowledge, understanding and a passion for what happened in the past, through the use of varied teaching methodologies and high quality teaching materials. Our teachers apply their deep understanding and enthusiasm for the study of the past to inspire our highly motivated and intelligent students. Our goal is to enable all of our pupils to fulfil their potential and to become historians – that is to gain an increasing level of mastery in the art of historical enquiry. This entails the development of both their reading and writing skills and increasingly varied and sophisticated exposure to historical narratives, techniques of analysis and evaluation, the use of questioning, source work and problem-solving.
