History A Level provides an excellent foundation of knowledge and skills which helps equip students for a variety of degree courses and careers. These range from Law, Accountancy and the Arts to Medicine (the latter combined with other relevant subjects). It is highly regarded by universities and is seen as proof that a student is interested in understanding the world around them and has the ability to analyse the processes which have created that world.

General
The History Department aims to promote historical awareness and a passion for learning about the past, as well as equipping students with a range of intellectual skills. Students learn about the past in a variety of ways, studying a mix of British and World history - , and they are encouraged to use that knowledge to help them make sense of the present.
Through History, students also develop the ability to organise information, argue a case, think critically and analyse source material, all of which are transferable skills which will benefit students in their study of other subjects and later in the world of work.
The range of sources students use in their enquiries includes contemporary footage, film, photos, artefacts, cartoons and paintings and is enhanced by our link with the Music department.
