Course content

History is the study of human beings and what we are like‐ I taffords a fantastic chance to explore what motivates people, how we got to where we are and how our lives are shaped by the past.
 
The history of one place is the history of many places and races‐ we care deeply about exploring these connections and encouraging pupils to pursue their own interests through their independent study units.
 
Learning to write an effective analytical and evaluative essay is akin to preparing for and succeeding in delivering a successful presentation‐ one of the most important of which is that of a Job interview.
