History A Level is taught at Kingsmead by experienced teachers. It is a demanding but exciting course which is very enjoyable.
Students consistently achieve well at A Level History. We have had a 100% pass rate at A2 level for the past eight years. Topics currently taught include the Tudors, the Russian Revolution and Civil Rights. Students are also given the opportunity to complete an extended essay on an historical event or period of their choice.
History A Level provides an excellent foundation of knowledge and skills which helps equip students for a variety of degree courses and careers. These range from Law, Accountancy and the Arts to Medicine (the latter combined with other relevant subjects). It is highly regarded by universities and is seen as proof that a student is interested in understanding the world around them and has the ability to analyse the processes which have created that world.
