    A Level History


A Levels have been reformed and new history courses offered since September 2015. In broad terms the A Level course offers students a minimum of 20% British history but students must also study the history of more than one country or state. Courses must include topics from a chronological range of 200 years across the course and there is also the requirement to study 100 years change over time.

Students take 4 modules; 3 examinations at the end of Year 13 and the submission of a piece of coursework.

Entry Requirements

Students should have a GCSE grade 5, or higher, in History or a similar subject e.g. Geography or English.

Curriculum Overview & Exam Information

We have included curriculum overviews as well as exam information to support students and parents/carers to have a better and broader understanding of how learning develops in each year group. The curriculum overview documents below indicate: the knowledge, skills and understanding that students will gain, how this unit builds on prior learning, and what mastery will look like for each year group. This year, we have added a catch up summary at the beginning to outline how we will catch up on lost learning during school closure. The red writing also indicates where the curriculum has been changed this academic year to support student catch up.
