Key Stage 3

In Key Stage 3 our students embark on a voyage through the ages in which they are taught about the key events, issues, people and inventions that have helped shape the world around them. 

Along the way they will be taught local History through a series of focussed, historical enquiries such as ‘Who were the first Merseysiders?’, ‘What was Liverpool’s role in the Slave Trade?’ and ‘Why was Liverpool attacked in World War 2?’

Topics studied include the Neolithic Revolution, Medieval Britain, the Tudor age, the Stuart age, the Industrial age, the Slave Trade, World Wars 1 and 2 and the social legacy of 20th Century Britain. 

Students will be helped to develop historical skills and by the end of year 8 they should feel confident in explaining the causes and consequences of historical events, explaining how events and people have been interpreted and how to put together a historical debate on key issues. These skills will be vital should they choose, as many students do, to study GCSE History

Key Stage 4

GCSE History 

Our students follow the Edexcel GCSE History 9-1 specification. The current Year 11 will be the first cohort to sit this new specification in the summer of 2017.  Further details of the course can be found in the links below. 

  New GCSE Overview

  Year 9 Crime and Punishment Breadth Study

  Year 10 Anglo Saxon and Normans

  Year 10 Superpower Relations and the Cold War

  Year 11 Weimar and Nazi Germany


Our VI form students work towards Advanced Level history from the AQA specification. The historical skills taught up to this point are further developed and by the end of the course our students should have the skills necessary to write extended pieces which demonstrate a complex level of debate and interpretation and evaluation of a wide range of historical source material.

Our study units are Challenge and Transformation: Britain, C.1851-1964 and Democracy and Nazism: Germany, 1918-45. Students are also required to undertake an independent historical study (coursework) worth 20% of their overall mark on a theme of their choosing (within guidelines)
