KS5 Curriculum

  1. Paper 1G Challenge and Transformation Victorian Britain, c1851–1964

This option allows students to study in breadth issues of change, continuity, cause and consequence in this period through the following key questions:

  • How did democracy and political organisations develop in Britain?
  • How important were ideas and ideologies?
  • How and with what effects did the economy develop?
  • How and with what effects did society and social policy develop?
  • How and why did Britain's relationship with Ireland change?
  • How important was the role of key individuals and groups and how were they affected by developments?
  1. Paper 2O   Democracy and Nazism: Germany, 1918–1945

This option provides for the study in depth of a period of German history during which a newly developed democratic form of government gave way to a dictatorial Nazi regime. It explores political concepts such as 'right' and 'left', nationalism and liberalism as well as ideological concepts such as racialism, anti-Semitism and Social Darwinism. It also encourages reflection on how governments work and the problems of democratic states as well as consideration of what creates and sustains a dictatorship.

  1. The coursework which is a piece of independent research is 20% of the final grade. Our topic is 100 years of the Stuarts. Britain 1602-1703

Both examinations will take place at the end of year 13. Both are two hours and thirty minutes and contain a compulsory source question and three questions of which candidates choose two. Both papers are 40% of the final grade.

The skills that students develop in History are transferable and essential to work in, for example, journalism, the law and in business. History is a rigorous academic subject; highly regarded at university level as it offers both written and communication skills that are demanded in the Twenty-first Century.
