History - A Level at The Latymer School
Studying A Level History will allow students to develop empathy and understanding of the actions and achievements of others. A Level History teaches you to build up a picture from the evidence that has been left and become skilled at asking questions, sometimes awkward questions. Students have to be prepared to put their case and argue it well, use evidence to draw conclusions and make judgements and as a result develop a deeper understanding of the past and valuable skills.
