GCSE History

History qualifications are highly regarded by businesses and universities because of the skills developed within the subject.

History students must learn to master the ability to locate, study and interpret written and visual material, in order to extract evidence and meaning. They must be adept at contextualisation, analysis, problem-solving and critical thinking. History students must be strong communicators, to express their findings clearly and effectively. These skills and knowledge can be extremely useful, both in employment and in the study of other subjects.
