What’s it all about?

History is about the study of people and their actions in the past but this study will also equip you with skills that will be useful in your future career. It is the subject for you if you enjoy considering evidence and developing your own opinions.

Initially there is a choice between two routes: you can study Religion and the State in Sixteenth Century Europe or Britain and the USA in the Twentieth Century. This choice will allow you to specialise in the area of History that really interests you; whether it be Tudor England or the struggle for Civil Rights in the USA.

Later in your course you may study the rise and fall of the British Empire in countries such as Australia, Canada and India. You will also have the opportunity to complete an independently researched historical enquiry on a topic of particular interest to you.

You will need GCSE English at grade 6 (preferred), in addition to the general entry criteria.
