In Rugby School Thailand’s Prep School we engage the children with the story of history, enthusing and challenging them by sparking their curiosity about different eras. Within the broader historical narrative children will develop an awareness of the passage of time and empathy for people in many historical periods.
Pupils will develop skills to help them think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments and develop perspective and judgement. Whilst these are crucial skills for studying history from Prep through Senior School and beyond, these analytical and discerning abilities are also extremely useful in adult life.
One of our main objects in the history department is to make the subject intellectually challenging, but always fun.
