History

Studying the past may brighten your future!VideoLink

  • Do you know why the conflicts currently happening in the world even started?
  • Do you know why some countries are friends and others are enemies?
  • Why is it people say that history is repeating itself when certain things happen?

Studying History can give you answers to these big questions.

Studying history GCSE will give you the chance to learn how the Britain and the wider world has been shaped by conflict, extremism and inspiring individuals.  You will get the chance to study fascinating and important turning points of the past 1000 years, and see how people view these events in very different ways.

Over the two years you will learn about how attitudes to Crime and punishment have changed over time; about how the world came to the brink of World War Three; and how Hitler turned Germany in to a country of fear, secrecy and control.

 

History GCSE will help you do just that!
