Historical events have shaped who we are today, and this is true across the world. Did you know that Magna Carta, a document signed in 1215, is the basis of the US constitution?
The A level History course is designed to help pupils understand the value and significance of world events in the past. In the process, they will gain a deeper understanding of social, cultural, religious, and ethnic diversity. Knowing how people lived in the past helps us to understand why people act like they do today.
Skills that history pupils develop:
- The ability to analyse.
- The ability to make informed criticisms.
- Independent research skills.
- The ability to listen and work with others.
- To develop your own opinion.
This is a two-year A level course with all examinations being taken in year 13.
