Compulsory at KS3, History is offered to students as an option for both GCSE and A-Level. In KS3 students are taken on a tour of British History from 1066 to the 20th Century including the Holocaust. At GCSE a broad range is studied with a key focus on developing analysis and extended writing skills, as well as providing students the opportunity to visit the battlefields of the First World War. One of the most successful subjects in the 6th form, A-Level History teaches the highest level academic skills through a study of America, South Africa and the British Empire.
