Joshua Garry, Joshua is a Deputy Head of History at a school in London with a passion for creating a more diverse and inclusive history curriculum.
“I think first and foremost you want your history curriculum to represent the experiences of the people inside the classroom or the people inside Britain. I always like to start in my classroom first. What does my classroom look like? I want my students to be able to connect with those stories. To see where they fit in.” – Joshua Garry
