History at Calday Grange Grammar School
The Edexcel course offers a wide and stimulating choice of content including British, European and World History. The course focuses on Twentieth Century History by examining developments in Britain, Russia and China at AS level, and then Germany and the USA at A2 level. The course features a mix of breadth and depth studies, and it uses a variety of assessment techniques, including essays and source evaluation. At A2 level all students will complete one coursework unit, allowing them the opportunity to study a particular individual or event in depth.
A GCSE in History or English at Grade B or above will give you the capacity to benefit from History at A-level. Usually, students choose History owing to their interest in a particular period, and their fascination with the characters who shaped events. The motives of people in the past and the societies in which they operated give an insight into modern trends. What is more, talking intelligently about the past is a mark of an educated person in any walk of life.
