History - A Level at Hanley Castle High School

Course description

The course aims to develop students’ powers of observation, analysis and argument through studying elements of history covering a 200 year period; to make them aware of the nature of change, continuity, similarity and difference; to promote an understanding of the present through the past and to encourage research techniques which will help students in their pursuit of post-18 education.

Entry requirements

A GCSE grade B in history is preferred. It is not essential to have studied GCSE history but it is highly recommended, and the student should possess an interest and enthusiasm for history.

Future opportunities

History is recognised as requiring a range of important skills, useful in both the workplace and higher education. A number of History students have gone on to study at Oxford and Cambridge in the past few years. Areas might include law, journalism, education, politics, management, social policy, media, in fact, any area in which the ability to analyse and interpret information is held in high regard.
