History at Prospect School
History A level helps you understand the significance of historical events, the role of individuals in history and the nature of change over time. It will also help you to gain a deeper understanding of the past through political, social, economic and cultural perspectives.
Industrialisation and the People 1783-1885 will help you to understand how Britain developed economically, politically and socially in a period of history that saw great change, much of which is still very relevant in Britain today. For example how did democracy develop? How did Britain develop economy and become a great industrial nation? How did these changes affect different groups of people? How did political parties develop? How and why did people demand change?
By studying these topics you will not only have a greater understanding of Britain in the 19th century but you will also have a greater understanding of Britain today.
The Cold War 1945-1991 looks at evolving international relations in an era of growing tension between communist and capitalist powers that sees the world on the verge of nuclear Armageddon. You will explore concepts of communism and anti-communism, aggression and détente whilst reflecting of military powers today, what forces hasten conflict and promote peace in the modern world.
