History A Level at Newport Girls' High School
History is a subject that encourages students to critically evaluate and interpret evidence from the past in order to develop reasoned hypotheses and form balanced judgments. With such transferable skills, History therefore provides an excellent foundation for various higher education courses, as well as increasing employability in a range of career areas, especially those that require developed communication skills. Some examples include Journalism, Law, Politics and Management.
