History at GCMS embraces more than the study of the past. We are a creative department engaged in innovative teaching methods that aims to students with the skills to analyse historical events, as well as the tools to apply that knowledge to understand the contemporary world and to plan for the future. History is by nature cross-cultural, international, and interdisciplinary. We work closely with other departments to ensure high levels of literacy and ICT are encouraged and maintained.

GCMS history studies aim to connect the present and the past, the local and the global; and to create and communicate new knowledge through their research and writing. We offer an engaging, exciting curriculum that encourages deep historical thinking, develops enquiry skills and promotes collaboration between young historians.
