A Level History enables students to not only develop their interest in and enthusiasm for History but also provide them wh the opportunity to deepen their understanding of its intrinsic value and significance within society.
A Level Historians are fascinated by both the topic of history (understanding the past) and the process by which we develop our understanding of history (interrogation of sources, debate, investigation etc.) During the course they learn to acquire and communicate knowledge and understanding of selected periods of history while developing their understanding of historical terms and concepts and exploring the events, people and issues of the following periods:
The Rise and Fall of fascism in Italy 1911-46
Germany and West Germany 1918-89
Rebellion and disorder under the Tudors 1485-1603
We follow the Edexcel specification.
Extra-curricular opportunities include: A Level history conferences and a 3-day trip to Auschwitz.
