Year 11 History

The study of history in the upper senior school has a central focus around the GCSE history course, and aims to develop the skills and knowledge developed in the subject in the lower seniors. The course covers two detailed period studies covering a short period of time (Year 9) and two broader thematic studies over a longer period (Year 10). Year 11 then aims to hone these skills in preparation for the GCSE examinations.
