History

In Years 7-8, students have one 60 minute lesson per week. In Year 7 the lessons focus on the Norman Conquest and how it affected the lives of the ordinary people in Medieval times. The second unit is Religion and Conflict in Tudor and Stuart Times. In Year 8 there are two courses - the History of Slave Trade and Slavery in the USA and Life during the Industrial Revolution. As part of the latter we look at the struggle for the right to vote embarked on by the Suffragettes.   

At GCSE level, students study Edexcel History 9-1 which involves courses on Elizabethan England, Medicine Through time 1250-present, The Relationship between the Superpowers 1941-1991 and Germany 1918-1939. Because there is no Controlled Assessment or coursework,  there are 3 exams at the end of Year 11 which determine each student’s GCSE grade. All students begin the course in Year 9 and will have undertaken a study of medicine during the First World War as part of the History of Medicine course and the Holocaust as part of their course on Germany. After Year 9 students can choose to continue to study either Geography or History.
