Year 10 and 11 History

Throughout Key Stage 4 pupils will follow the AQA Modern World History Syllabus. They will study International Relations between 1919 and 1945, and two Twentieth Century Society Depth Studies. These will focus on the USA and Germany between the World Wars. These units are examined in two written exams at the end of Year 10 and or 11. They will also complete two source based Controlled Assessment pieces focussing on a comparison of Britain in World War I and World War II. This is worth 25% of their overall work will be completed in Y10.

Throughout the course there are opportunities to study history from a variety of perspectives, including political, social, economic and cultural, thereby helping students to appreciate the diversity of the societies studied and the experiences of the people in these

Societies. The course also provides the opportunity to study the 20th Century in both breadth and depth and presents the opportunity to study the history of Britain, Europe and the world in the 20th Century. It builds on Key Stage 3 Studies and prepares students for the study of A Level History.
