Inspiring young people to learn from the past and apply it to their future.

So many people are interested in history either though film, TV literature or celebrations of past historical events. We aim to allow pupils to know more about the events which have shaped the world, our country and themselves. We learn through stimulating and enjoyable lessons.

We are all exposed to ever increasing amounts of information. Deciphering which bits are useful and valuable is important for people every day. History at Ballyclare High School equips young people with the skills to evaluate what they read or watch and make informed choices and decisions. We encourage pupils to analyse sources, see both sides of the argument, understand different perspectives and be able to justify their interpretations.

‘He who does not learn from the past is doomed to repeat it.’ George Santayana.
