History AS/A Level at Saint Cecilia's Church of England School

Essay and written examination.
Students in the Sixth Form, who are in need of some financial support, may be eligible for the Schools 16 to 19 Bursary Fund. This is the fund which replaces EMA and has been allocated directly, by the Government, to individual Schools to administer. This funding, however, does not replicate EMA and the amount of money available for distribution is much less. Therefore, we are committed to distributing Bursaries to those students with the greatest need. Eligibility for Guaranteed Bursary Students most in need will be eligible to receive a bursary of £1,200 a year.
This group includes: People in care, care leavers, people claiming income support, disabled young people who receive Employment Support Allowance and Disability Living Allowance.
There are so many careers out there that require the skills that a study of history can bring; law, medicine, business, finance, accountancy, tourism, town planning, politics, journalism, research to name but a few!
