Ensuring a broad, comparable and coherent course of study
Our courses are designed to ensure a broad, comparable, and coherent student experience; with each session constructed around distinct principles which are tailored to match their GCSE assessment in line with AQA, Edexcel and OCR.
We will first outline the objectives in the students curriculum and ask for a self assesment. We will then teach to the students weak points, whilst informing how to write answers to exam questions that achieve higher grades.
To ensure a substantial breadth of study, the courses chart history across three eras, three time scales, and three geographical contexts; and incorporates each of the five specified elements: One thematic study, one period study, two depth studies, and a study of the historic environment.
The examination specification offers choice of content and flexible pathways to allow teachers to design a curriculum that is relevant to students, engages them, and stimulates their interest in history; whilst maintaining high levels of comparability. Therefore the topics may vary depending on the student.
Our teachers can offer flexibility in this respect.
The subject content for GCSE History states that the scope of study should include history:
Early Modern (1450–1750)
Modern (1700–present day)
short (depth study)
medium (period study)
long (thematic study)
a locality (the historic environment)
European and/or wider world settings.
British history forms a minimum of 40% of the assessed content over the full course.
