Meredith Evans

I’m Head of History at Stepney Green school in East London and I am very excited to be working with Parallel Histories. I was drawn to the project because 99% of our students come from the same background – we are not a very diverse school and that can result in some limitations in what our students experience and understand of the outside world. What I’ve really enjoyed is introducing them to some diverse history with a range of points of view that maybe they haven’t considered before and which they wouldn’t be encouraged to consider outside the school environment. It’s been a really good opportunity for our boys to interact with other schools in debate and to pick up those skills that will allow them to become well-rounded and engaged people in society when they leave us. This represents for us the chance to do everything we can to ensure not just that they do well in their exams but also to ensure that they are receiving a range of information about the world around them and that they are engaging with issues which are going to important later on outside school life.
