We are a department who are unashamedly History-obsessed. We thoroughly enjoy the History that we teach, which comes through within our teaching. GCSE History provides a wonderful opportunity to hone skills of analysis and evaluation which will stand you in good stead for A Levels, University interviews and beyond. History is a wonderful subject to study. It can give you such a wide range of information, knowledge, and perspectives and, certainly with the case of our modern History modules can help you understand the way our world is shaped today.
