HISTORY

 

STUDY KEY EVENTS IN BRITISH HISTORY THAT HAVE INFLUENCED THE SOCIETY THAT WE HAVE TODAY AND GAIN AN A-LEVEL THAT BOTH UNIVERSITIES AND EMPLOYERS HIGHLY VALUE.

A Level you will study key events in British and European History that have influenced the society that we have today and gain an A Level that both universities and employers highly value. It is widely regarded as a facilitating subject. 

WHAT YOU STUDY

History pupils will be following an exciting new curriculum which will present the opportunity to study a wide range of significant topics. You will explore modules in:

·         Anglo-Saxon England and the Norman Conquest 1035-1107

·         Russia 1894 – 1941

·         The Origins of the British Empire 1558-1783. 

You will also complete an independent piece of research into an historical issue of your choice, which can be on from any time period or topic that you wish to examine. The feedback we have received from pupils who have studied these modules since September 2015 has been overwhelmingly positive.

HOW YOU STUDY

You will make or be provided with detailed notes that cover all aspects of the course. Teachers also make use of films, role play and a variety of other activities that will engage you throughout the course. The department have previously visited the Normandy battlefields and are also currently planning a future excursion to the D-Day landing beaches and The Somme battlefields.

 

DEPARTMENT STRENGTHS AND RESOURCES

You will be taught by very experienced teachers who have a long record of bringing out the best in their students. They all have specialisms and have built up a considerable body of knowledge and expertise in these areas. We have an extensive department library which sixth formers are welcome to use and a developing Haggle site containing useful links, resources and forums. The subject is regularly one of the most popular subjects at A Level due to the high quality of the teaching and also the wide range of support given.

 

PROGRESSION TO UNIVERSITY

Over the years many Hagley students have gone on to read for a degree in this subject. You will get good advice on which courses will suit you – your teachers have first-hand knowledge of universities that they will readily pass on to you.

 

OUR SUCCESSES

Every year History is an extremely popular degree course choice for many students. There are at this moment former Hagley sixth formers reading for degrees in this subject at universities such as Durham, York and Birmingham. 

 

COMBINES WELL WITH

Many Hagley sixth formers combine our subject with Law and Geography. There is a strong case for also studying English Literature, but we have taught students with a diverse range of combinations, including Mathematics and Physics. 

 

GCSE ENTRANCE REQUIREMENTS

Ideally you will have studied the subject at GCSE; but this is negotiable with Mr Trickett. You will write essays and coursework assignments and therefore should feel confident about your writing skills, having achieved at least a Grade C in English.
