The GCSE course is 100% exam at the end, made up of two papers, each worth 50%. The exam board is AQA and throughout the course students will practice lots of different types of questions, as well as sit practice papers. Students are given the opportunity to purchase the textbook through the school and we will also endeavour to create revision materials (such as NED summary sheets) throughout the course to help them in their learning.
One period study: "America, 1920–1973: Opportunity and Inequality"
One thematic study: "Britain: Health and the People"
One wider world depth study: "Conflict and Tension Between East and West, 1945–1972"
One British depth study including the historical environment: "Elizabethan England, c1568–1603"
Students will be examined on a specific site in depth. This site will be as specified and will be changed annually. The site will relate to Elizabethan England. The study of a site should enrich students’ understanding of Elizabethan England.
There is no requirement to visit the specified site which for exams in 2018 is Harwick Hall, 2019 is The Globe Theatre and 2020 is The defeat of the Spanish Armada in the English Channel.
We also offer a trip to Berlin in the Summer Term to help support our Cold War unit.
