Welcome to History

In the history department we are enthusiastic about our subject and about the benefits that we believe it offers students. History is vital as it offers an excellent understanding of the way that the world has changed and developed in the past and so helps us to understand the world in which we live today. History is taught by a dedicated team of specialists who believe in challenging students to broaden both their knowledge and skills. We strive to create exciting, imaginative and inspiring lessons through a variety of different techniques.

Overview of the Year for History at Key Stage 4

In the History department we follow the Edexcel History A GCSE: Modern World History (Year 11) and the Edexcel GCSE History (Year 9 and 10). Through our planning, teaching, assessment and marking, teachers of History aim to develop students’ ability to recall, select and use historical knowledge, understand historical terms and concepts, communicate information in a clear and coherent manner; both verbally and in written form, interpret and evaluate a wide range of sources, respect individuals beliefs and different cultures, make reasoned and balanced judgements, reflect on their own learning and finally to understand their role as a global citizen.

Overview of the Year for History at Key Stage 5

In the History department we follow the AQA GCE History 7041/2 course. This is a two year course in which students will study three modules of work. The work in Year 12 can lead to an independent AS qualification but we intend for all students to continue on into Year 13 to complete the full A level. Our A level course is designed to build upon the foundation of knowledge, skills and understanding that students developed at GCSE. During the two year course students will be encouraged to acquire, and effectively communicate, knowledge and understanding of two comparative periods of history; develop an understanding of historical terms and concepts; explore the significance of events, individuals, issues and societies in history; understand historical evidence and the methods used by Historians to analysis and evaluate this evidence; develop an understanding of how the past has been interpreted and represented; understand that history is concerned with judgements based on the evidence available and finally, to develop an interest and enthusiasm for history.
