encouraged to investigate key historical
issues from different viewpoints by
analysing and interpreting source material.

these issues and develop the required
skills, historical study will blend traditional
classroom teaching with group discussion,
private learning as well as opportunities to
visit places of specific historical interest.
Previous visits have included: Ironbridge,
the Houses of Parliament and Moscow.

Entry requirements

GCSEs or equivalents at grade C
