History / Hanes A & AS Level WJEC at Ysgol Gyfun Gwyr
Our aim is to provide enjoyment and increase students interest in History and, if they so wish, to prepare them for further study of the subject. History is generally acknowledged as an academic subject. A good grade in History shows employers that the candidate can deal effectively with a substantial body of information and comprehend it. . Not only is the study of the past absorbing in itself, but it also provides insights into events occurring in our world today. The course is divided into two parts: aspects of the History of Wales and England c.1780-1886, Nazi Germany c. 1933-45. We use a variety of teaching methods which include traditional teacher led lessons, seminars, group work, individual research, guest lectures, and visits to historical places of interest. A grade C and above is required in GCSE History.
The subject is a good foundation for many further education courses and for careers in banking, law, journalism, teaching and broadcasting
