History is an exciting and stimulating experience which has something to offer all enquiring minds. It is taught very differently to how it used.
At Key Stage 3 pupils follow a chronological study of Wales and Britain from 1000-2000. Topics include the Black Death, Henry VIII, the English Civil War, Industrial Swansea, Trench Warfare and Swansea during the Second World War.
GCSE history builds on the experience and skills acquired at Key Stage 3. Topics studied include: Changes in South Africa 1948-1994, The USA 1910 – 1929 and the Development of Germany 1919 – 1991.
At both Key Stages we work hard to stimulate an interest in the past. A significant number of our students continue their studies at Advanced and Degree level.
