IB History at Thamesview School
The IBCP is a unique programme addressing the needs of students engaged in career-related education. IBCP students study two IB Diploma Programme (DP) courses, a core
consisting of four components and a BTEC Diploma subject.
The Diploma Programme (DP) history course is a world history course based on a comparative, multi-perspective approach to history and focused around key historical concepts such as change, causation and significance. It involves the study of a variety of types of history, including political, economic, social and cultural, encouraging students to think historically and to develop historical skills. In this way, the course involves a challenging and demanding critical exploration of the past.
The DP history course requires students to study and compare examples from different regions of the world, helping to foster international mindedness. Teachers have a great deal of freedom to choose relevant examples to explore with their students, helping to ensure that the course meets their students’ needs and interests regardless of their location or context.
History is available at both Standard Level (SL) and Higher Level (HL).
Minimum of 6 GCSEs at Level 4 or above (A*-C equivalent), including English Lit or Lang at grade 4 and Maths at Level 4.
There is a mixture of internal assessment and exam papers at the end of the 2 year course.
