Students opting for A level History will need to complete four units over two years. Units 1 and 2 focus on communism in the twentieth century. Unit 1 is a breadth paper which explores Communist Russia between 1917 and 1991 and Unit 2 is a depth study looking at China between 1949 and 1976.

Unit 3 is a breadth paper with some aspects in depth which looks at Rebellion and Disorder under the Tudors (1485-1603). In Unit 4 students will complete an independently researched enquiry on historical interpretations. They will write a 3000-4000 word essay as part of this enquiry which is worth 20 per cent of the overall A level.

At the end of Year 13, students will complete three examinations.
