Welcome to History

A Level History gives students a chance to explore modern history starting in the late eighteenth century and ending in the late twentieth century. Subject areas include a breadth study on the rise and fall of Communist Russia 1917-91, a depth study on Mao’s China and a Breadth and Depth study on the changing relationship between Britain and Ireland. Students also complete an independently researched enquiry on historical interpretations.

This year the coursework has been based on the causes of the October revolution giving students an opportunity to investigate an issue that stems from their earlier study of Russia. A level students are encouraged to participate in lecture days and educational visits. History is a highly successful and popular subject at A level with an increasing number of students studying history at university.
