BRIEF OUTLINE OF THE COURSE
In year 7 students focus on medieval England, from the Norman Conquest to the Wars of the Roses. KS3 history continues chronologically up to the Holocaust in the 20th century. Source analysis skills are incorporated into each unit of study, and assessments are taken every half term to measure progress in in knowledge, skills and analysis.
All units are of equal weight and the final assessment for each one is given a grade from A*-G. This is used to produce a Teacher Assessed grade at the end of the year.
Each unit lasts for half a term and is assessed using GCSE style questions. All previous work is assessed every half term.
