We use departmental laptops and iPads when students are being independent and researching new topics or cementing their knowledge alongside our interactive whiteboards and department planned lessons to provide consistent lessons to all classes.

We also use text books and the library to further encourage independence.

In History GCSE students cover four modules to increase their knowledge of the world around them. Our exam board is AQA; the four modules we teach are America: Opportunity and Inequality, 1845-1890 (American West); Conflict and Tension between East and West 1945-1972 (The Cold War); Norman England c1066-c1100; and Health and the People c1000-Modern Day (Medicine). Each module has equal weighting for the overall grade. These are examined in two, 2 hour exams – with each module having an hour. The exams include source work questions and essay writing.

Year 10 – Conflict and Tension between East and West 1945-1972 (Cold War) and Norman England
