The Lowry Academy intends to provide students with a high-quality History education that will enable students to understand Little Hulton, Walkden, Salford and Manchester’s place within Britain and the wider world by exploring a range of time periods, people and places from the past. We have designed the curriculum to allow our students to develop a coherent, chronological understanding of Britain’s place in the world. We also want our students to become aware of how significant individuals and events have shaped both the local area and the wider world, and how both Salford and Britain have been influenced by the wider world, to create the more cosmopolitan, diverse society we see today.
