History Of ICHK In 100 Objects

History Of ICHK In 100 Objects

In January 2010, the BBC began broadcasting a 100-part radio series called A History of the World in 100 Objects. The series drew on the expertise of the British Museum’s director, Neil MacGregor, who used each episode to explore the historical and cultural significance of a different object from the museum’s collections.

This inspired our own History of ICHK in 100 Objects – what a great way, we thought, to explore the evolving history of our school and to examine its values, ethos and character through the material technologies that resonate with us as its users. Each of these objects has a story to tell, is woven round with memories and emotions, and acts as a lodestar for teachers and students who join the school.

Following MacGregor’s lead, we too are travelling back in time, to see how the ICHK community has shaped its world and been shaped by it. It’s an ongoing story, to which we are constantly adding.

In 2017 ICHK was named as one of Cambridge University’s 100 most innovative schools in the world.
