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.
