Introduction to the department
We are fortunate at Aston Manor School to have highly-qualified, enthusiastic and committed history teachers. Miss Sanghera has been Head of History for the past twelve years. In 1991, she gained an Upper Second Class BA in History & Economics from Lancaster University. A year later, the Institute of Education in London awarded her a PGCE. She taught in London, Surrey and Dudley before joining AMA.
Mrs Clifton has been a History teacher at the school for eleven years. She studied History at Huddersfield University and then went to Birmingham University to complete her PGCE. She worked at Aldridge School before joining us. Mrs Clifton runs the History Film Club and the Crochet Club as well as being a member of the Teaching and Learning Team who deliver expert training and coaching.
We are experienced at helping our students fulfil their potential. Our most recent GCSE results are 78% A*–Cs (June 2015). To build on this success our first A level students sat their exams and 50% of students obtained grade A*-B.
