GCSE History

History is both an interesting and relevant subject to study.

You may well ask ‘What use is History to me? Why do I need to know what happened in the past?’.

But History is much more than just what happened, it teaches a range of valuable, transferable skills. Such skills are highly regarded by employers since they show that you can retain, analyse and present information effectively. In short, it shows a trained mind. Studying History also provides an understanding of politics, sociology and economics and provides the background to current events.
