Key Stage 5
In our sixth form our students follow the Edexcel A Level History Course. They continue to develop their knowledge, understanding and curiosity about past peoples and cultures. They look at a range of topics that broaden their knowledge of past societies, including political and economic developments across time and place. Students further hone and master the skills that they began to develop in KS3 and KS4. Through their coursework, they become more independent in their learning and begin to carry out their own independent research into a topic area of their choice. Students learn to think critically, ask important questions and sustain an argument. Students also develop their oracy and literacy skills through class discussions and debates and essay writing. The A Level History course equips students with a range of knowledge and skills that will prepare them well for further study and a range of different careers.
