History at Hele's School

Course description

Skills Required
We expect students of History to have an enthusiasm for learning about the past and the commitment and determination to achieve their potential. They should have the self-motivation to be prepared to work independently and take responsibility for their own learning.
Successful History students are able to assimilate large amounts of information in order to present a coherent and logical argument. Students will also be required to analyse and evaluate evidence from the time period that they are studying. For these reasons, students benefit from having well developed literacy skills.
