History A Level KIN at Invictus Sixth Form

Course description

Students are able to develop a further understanding of British and world history in the 20th Century by studying A Level History at Kinver. We look to build on existing historical skills to further enhance students’ understanding of key eras that have shaped the world we live in today. Students with excellent written ability, and who are keen to explore different interpretations of the past are able to thrive in a supportive but educationally-challenging environment. Students who are confident with long-essay writing and source analysis tend to be suited to the A Level course content, but they must also be willing to do independent reading to enhance their knowledge and understanding of both the British Empire, and Weimar and Nazi Germany. A passion for History, alongside a determination to grow and develop as a historian are the foundations on which success is built upon at A Level. When combined with a talent for written communication, students can flourish in their study of History at Kinver Sixth Form. .
