History (Rights, Race and Revolutions) A level at Hills Road Sixth Form College

Course description

History is who we are and why we are the way we are.

Why Choose History?

"History lessons are great fun!” and Hills Road historians ensure that the fun extends beyond the classroom, running debates and a mini-conference with outside speakers. Given the analytical and evaluative skills that historians develop, it's no wonder that History is highly regarded by top universities and employers alike.

Rights, Race and Revolutions. This covers:
'The World Turned Upside Down?': The Stuarts, Cromwell and the Civil Wars, 1603-60;
'The Era of the Iron Curtain': The Cold War in Europe, 1941-95;
'From Slaves to Citizens': Civil Rights in the USA, 1865-1992

Coursework in Year 13 offers the opportunity to study a historical controversy via a Modern, Early Modern or Medieval route. Topics include: The Crusades; Early Modern Witch Hunts; The French Revolution; and Nazi Germany.

"Teacher's passion for History is clear. My understanding and enjoyment have been developed way beyond GCSE by the lively classroom debate, collaborative work, near-limitless supply of supplementary reading and enthusiastic teaching." Inigo Hunnable
