Key Stage 4
At Key Stage 4 we offer AQA GCSE History. We have broken this up into four sections:
- Germany 1890-1945: Democracy and Dictatorship
- Conflict and Tension, 1918-1939
- Britain: Health and the People: c1000 to present day
- Norman England, c1066-c1100
These modules cover both the overview studies and depth studies that a History curriculum requires.
