From September 2019, students will step forwards and backwards in time. They will be invited to explore new worlds, past, present and future – increasing their understanding of historical context while also developing empathy skills. Together, they will take characters from Madame Tussauds into the Time Machine and explore the concept of fame through the ages.

  • Understanding how individuals are shaped and challenged by the historical contexts in which they live
  • Empathising with individuals from different historical periods
  • Gaining historical perspective by placing knowledge in different contexts
