History A Level at The Cherwell School
A level historians at The Cherwell School will study a range of fascinating periods, events and individuals from history. These are:
- The reigns of the later Tudors (Edward, Mary and Elizabeth).
- The Cold War and its impact on Europe between 1941 and 1995.
- The Catholic Reformation of the 16th century.
- An independent study in which students will use a range of primary and secondary sources to investigate a historical question of their choosing.
In Year 12 you will explore one British and one non-British topic. The first of these focuses on the latter part of the Tudor reign from 1547–1603. For the non-British study we then explore the Cold War in Europe from 1941 to 1995.
In Year 13 you will further extend your expertise of 16th century Europe with a thematic study of the Catholic Reformation 1492–1610. In addition, you will complete the independent topic-based essay.
Lessons will consist of a variety of learning styles (e.g. seminars, group work, debates). Students will also have opportunities for independent historical research.
Students are expected to have achieved grade C or above in history.
