HISTORY at Steyning Grammar School

Course description

In a globalized world in which power is shared disproportionately between countries and their peoples, studying modern History will help you to understand how governments in the 20th century have used and abused their power. The course will allow you to reflect on two completely different styles of government and appreciate how the competition between these two styles nearly led to the destruction of the planet. Against this back drop of the 'Cold War' there is an opportunity to look at how the British mass media and popular culture has thrived during later 20th century.
