Interview with Kathryn Ingham, 24 March 2010

By Kathryn Ingham and Jenny Keating

Abstract

Kathryn Ingham was born in 1952 and went to primary school in West Yorkshire, where she remembered history as being about personalities and stories. She passed the 11+ and went to a girls’ grammar school in Pontefract. Again she mainly remembered the personalities in the history she studied in the early years but she did a project on Fountains Abbey and described a trip to Chatsworth. The teaching was mainly ‘chalk and talk’. Kathryn enjoyed history and did it for O level and then for A level which she found very different as it was much more about doing your own reading and interpretation of events. She really enjoyed the discussion and stimulating teaching she had in the sixth form. She went on to do a degree and now works as a part-time primary school teacher. Interviewed by Jenny Keating
