Virtual Open Evening – 2020
Video 7 – History
As we race through the 21st Century, our rapidly growing town is uniquely poised with one foot rooted in history and the other firmly planted toward a bright future. The signs of those who went before us are everywhere, and their influence shapes who we, as a community, will become.
The history Department at Seaham High School are passionate about bringing the subject to life, showing their students a glimpse of the past while always remaining aware of the impact on the present and possibilities for the future. We are lucky to live in a place so steeped in history. This beautiful stretch of North Eastern coastline has seen plenty of action from Viking and Norman conquest, through bombing runs by the Luftwaffe in World War 2 and a post war expansion built upon the backs of hard working coal miners. The past is alive in everything we see around us, and our History Department are the perfect people to lead you toward your own bright future.
