History at Cardinal Newman Catholic School

Course description

Studying A-level History is to take part in a fascinating exploration and investigation of the people and events of the past. At this advanced level you are expected to take an active role as a young historian and most importantly to decide for yourself how you view the issues under discussion. Reading is a key aspect of independent learning; the more you read, the more effectively you will be able to join in with and enjoy the debate.

The course is unique, as you will not only investigate the Tudor and Stuart periods, but will also learn about Modern History in terms of Russia and Germany. This will give you valuable scope when looking ahead to university courses. If you are an avid reader, curious about the world around you, enjoy a good argument and like to find different ways of seeing things, then History A-level is an excellent choice. It will offer you the development of a range of valuable skills as well as a memorable and enjoyable experience.
