Overview

The History GCSE syllabus has been designed to give students a broad and diverse study of the

history of Britain and the wider world and give them the skills that will support progression to

further study of history and a wide range of other subjects.

The History GCSE will extend students’ knowledge of History at Key Stage 3 by studying new

areas of content and by revisiting and deepening their knowledge of content studied previously.

Our GCSE syllabus also supports progression to A Level so that students will have a coherent

and diverse experience of history if they take both GCSE and A Level in History.
