Year 13 History
Teacher in Charge: Mr H. Meads
Introduction - why study History?
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. History students become skilled at:
