History AS/A2 at Stanborough School
Students on this course will have the opportunity to learn about the social, political and
economic history of Britain and other countries in Europe, America and more distant parts
of the world. You will develop your knowledge and understanding of some fascinating
events and people. History is also about exploring how the world has developed through
time and you will learn how to investigate, debate and critically analyse the past.
The course is divided into four units with assessment based on a combination of exams
and coursework. You will be expected to consider the evidence of sources, develop
detailed arguments, reach sustained arguments and, at A2, carry out an enquiry leading to
an extended piece of writing.
History students become very effective communicators, researchers and analytical
thinkers. These skills are widely recognised and valued by employers and universities.
History combines well with Arts, Languages and Science based subjects and can lead
to a wide range of exciting and challenging careers, such as journalism, law, teaching,
publishing, business and the civil service.
