History at Hazel Grove High School

Course description

Are you interested in finding out why things happen? Or how peoples’ views are shaped, and why some people are willing to die for their beliefs? If you like examining evidence, and discussing and analysing peoples’ ideas and actions, then History could be a subject for you. You’ll need to be able to weigh up evidence, draw your own conclusions, and build persuasive arguments. You might even be able to answer one of History’s most complex questions - why did Henry VIII have six wives?

Entry requirements

In the main, entry depends on the attitudes and aspirations of the prospective Sixth Formers. All students should be able to demonstrate willingness to progress and a desire to do well. You must show a commitment to making the best use of opportunities available and an ability to succeed with the course you choose. In general, if you wish to study an Advanced Level course you will need a minimum of 5 GCSE passes at grade C or above including Maths and English. A minimum of a B GCSE grade must be achieved in a subject if you want to study it for A level. Many subjects can be studied at A Level with a B grade in a similar subject, if the student has not studied that subject at GCSE. See individual subject details.
