History A Level at The Hazeley Academy

Course description

You will evaluate historical change considering the causes, consequences and significance of an array of events. As part of a two year course you will investigate Tudor England – focusing on the crises that occurred in the period 1485 – 1558 including the reign of Henry VIII and his domestic and foreign threats to his reign. In addition, we also study the religious tensions, rebellions and unrest during this period.

You will also have the opportunity to complete a module on American Westward Expansion and the origins of the American Civil War in the 19th Century. There will be an internal assessment at the end of Year 12 which will assess your understanding and knowledge of Tudor England and American Westward Expansion.

Furthermore, you will complete a thematic study on Russia and its rulers in the period 1864 – 1964 which covers the impact of dictatorial regimes on the economy and society of the Russian Empire and Soviet Union. You will also study in depth the impact of Alexander II’s  domestic reforms, the role of the Provisional government  as well as evaluating the impact of Khruschev’s  government  from 1956 – 1964.

Entry requirements

Students should have a minimum grade of a B in GCSE History.

Future opportunities

A-level History is extremely valuable for a wide-range of future courses. Whilst the evaluative skills developed are perfect for degrees in the Social Sciences, English, Law, Economics and Humanities, it is by no means limited to these fields. Indeed, increasingly universities welcome this qualification in candidates interested in the sciences due to the analytical techniques and critical thinking skills history encourages.
