Initially, History is taught in blocks of c.330 years and is primarily British centred. The Fourth (Year 7) learn about the period from 1066 to 1400, Upper Fourth (Year 8) from 1400 to 1730 and Lower Fifth (Year 9) from 1666 to 1966.
When students study GCSE History they cover The First World War, Weimar and Nazi Germany, Civil Rights in America and The League of Nations and the United Nations. Those moving on to A Level History look at the Tudors and Russian History, and complete coursework on The Holocaust.
History is a core subject at Lower School Level and is then an option at GCSE and A Level.
