History A Level at Chelsea Academy

Course description

At AS you will study aspects of British history from an entirely new angle. There are two units. One is a late medieval/early modern study of ‘The War of the Roses’ and ‘The Reign of Henry 7th’ while the other is an in-depth study of ‘Britain 1945-1990’. Both units lead to an exam.

At A2 you will study what happens to countries when corrupt, decaying regimes reach the end of their natural life. You will complete an in-depth study of the causes, events and legacy of ‘The French Revolution 1786-1830’ and ‘The Making of Modern China 1900-2000’. The former is an exam topic, while the latter is an enquiry leading to a piece of coursework.
