 Head of History, Mr A Summers, a.summers@glynschool.org

Why study this subject?

History is incredible, fascinating, complex and at times shocking. This course is packed full of interesting people, places, events and colourful stories. We explore the problems, choices and beliefs of people in the past and try to understand why things happened the way that they did. The GCSE History course helps us to understand where we came from, which shapes our decisions about the world around us and our future. There is no one way of seeing the past so you will make your own judgements and challenge and question each other and your teachers. History develops problem solving, critical thinking, research and communication skills. It builds your confidence in a wide range of transferable skills that will help you in your other GCSEs, future studies and careers.

Is this subject right for me?

If you would rather debate, discuss and deliberate than be told the ‘facts’ then this is the course for you.

This is to explain to students how interpretations have changed over time. It also is designed to demonstrate How Britain's relationship with the World has changed over time as well.

This follows on ith Elizabeth solving her domestic issues and then moving to the wider world -  this can then be linked to religious struggle first spoken about in previous half term.
