History at Hanham Woods Academy

Course description

Within History at Hanham Woods Academy, we have chosen to study topics from Modern British, European and World History, together with some topics from more remote periods of History. This is because we want History to be relevant to you and help you to understand the world you live in today, but we also want you to be able to experience the study of events from much longer ago and how historians go about studying them.
