History (GCSE) at St Columba's Catholic Boys' School
“History” is not simply learning the facts about the past; it endeavours to develop skills within the pupil such as rationality, response, understanding and even sympathy; it seeks to examine a wide variety of source material and evidence. High standards are expected in terms of punctuality, presentation and a willingness to work in group situations. The regular completion of homework is seen as essential in promoting continuity between lessons and in developing good study habits. As well as providing a balanced presentation of study in itself, the course offers both a stepping stone to A-Level and Further Education as well as helping to develop the rational, analytical and open-minded young man that all employers are searching for. Therefore, History at GCSE Level has much to offer.
