The History Department aims to ensure that all students develop skills of critical thinking, incisive analysis, effective oral and written argument, reading between the lines, essay writing and more. History is not simply a dry series of dates and events, but an ongoing process of investigation, analysis, selection, debate and writing. Teachers with a genuine passion for their subject bring History to life using a wide variety of teaching styles to help different students learn in different ways.
History is one of the most popular option choices at A-level, highlighting the success of our GCSE programmes. At A-level, students undertake a depth-study the USA from1945-1980, and a breadth-study of British history from 1783-1885.
History studies not just facts and institutions, its real subject is the human spirit.
uma Denis Fustel de Coulanges
The more you know about the past, the better prepared you are for the future.
The subject of history is the life of peoples and mankind.
