Key Stage 3

The history course at Key Stage 3 provides students with the necessary skills and knowledge to access the Edexcel GCSE History (9-1) course in Key Stage 4. Year 7 history is about building firm foundations in both knowledge and skills. In Year 8 we extend these foundations in order to create the building blocks for successful GCSE historians.
