Entry requirements: Grade 5 and above in 5 GCSE subjects (including English and History)
A Level History is aimed at helping you understand more about the world in which we live. Studying History not only teaches you about the past, it also helps you to understand the present and to possibly predict the future. You will learn to think clearly and analytically and to make sound judgements based on evidence, within an interesting and intellectually stimulating subject.

You will study the Tudor (1485-1603), Democracy and Nazism (1918-1945) and complete a 3000-4000 word essay for the non-examined assessment on the key developments in the Civil Rights Movement.
Career opportunities:
History is valued by all employers and universities. However, if you are considering going into law, journalism, public services, conservation, town planning, archaeology, curating then it is a useful subject to study.
Teachers: Mrs Handford and Miss Quarton
