History Department's Achievement of Exemplar Status

Corby Business Academy are incredibly proud of our History Department. 

In July, the History department was honoured to gain the Historical Association Quality Mark Gold Award. The assessor, Dr. Lomas, a principal education inspector, chair of the British Association for Local History, Honorary Secretary of the Historical Association and member of the secondary committee was thoroughly impressed with our curriculum, leadership, teaching and learning, achievement, and enrichment. He recommended that Corby Business Academy be designated an exemplar history department.

As a result of Dr. Lomas’ recommendation, we are now featured as a benchmark for history education in secondary schools on the Historical Association website.

Corby Business Academy is one of just three secondary schools and the only comprehensive to showcase the gold standard criteria.

Furthermore, we are featured in the Historical Association's Teaching History magazine, the seminal publication for history teachers. Please see the attached recently published article.
