Year 11 History

Although next year timetables are yet to be finalised, course selection is now finished. Any changes to student courses will now take place in January.

Subject Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr H. Meads

History aims to stimulate an interest in and an enthusiasm for learning about the past. We want to ensure that students' knowledge of contemporary society is grounded in an understanding of the past. In History, students read a range of source material, learning to interpret information with discrimination and insight.

Students develop their communication skills, learning to express themselves effectively for different purposes. Key historical concepts such as cause and consequence, change and continuity, and similarity and difference, as well as investigation, analysis and evaluation of source material, are developed.

History provides a broad foundation of knowledge and skills for a wide range of university courses and careers.
