GCSE History is not only a fascinating subject, but also a thought provoking one too. During the academic year you will study history from three eras: Medieval (500-1500), Early modern (1450-1750) and Modern (1700-Present Day). These eras will be across three timescales: short (depth study), Medium (period study) and long (thematic study). Finally the course will cover three geographical contexts: A locality (the historic environment), British, and European and/or the wider world setting.
