History AS/A Level at Barnhill Community High School
The History Department aims to equip students with a well-rounded knowledge of important people and events spanning a variety of historical contexts. We encourage students to treat history as an academic discourse and they will be taught to discuss, persuade and respond appropriately to relevant texts. They will also encounter a wide variety of cultures and will develop an appreciation of the diversity of experience. Students will learn to express themselves effectively and convey ideas in an accurate and professional manner in preparation for all forms of assessment.
Students follow the Edexcel Syllabus, looking specifically at Russia in Revolution, Pursuing Life and Liberty in the USA and Changing Role of Women for AS. At A2 Students complete coursework on Dictatorship and Revolution in Russia and the Soviet Union and an exam on From Kaiser to Fuhrer: Germany 1900-1945.
