St Gilbert's R.C.

Primary School

Inspired by St. Gilbert, as God's family, we are growing strong in love and faith, becoming the best we can be.



We aim to ensure that children have a good understanding of chronology and that they are taught to question their understanding of the past and to know how this has influenced present and future times. History where possible will be taught through the use of visitors, brilliant artefacts and exciting trips. We use methods such as historical enquiry, problem solving , investigation and interpreting skills  to help our pupils make sense of the past and what lessons can be learned for today.






St Gilberts have joined the Historical Associaton. They are a charity and the voice for History in the UK. And they help with History teaching and learning.

Thank you for sending in the names of your loved ones who fought in the war.
