The study of A Level History at STAHS is both intellectually stimulating and utterly intriguing. Students are encouraged to interrogate the past through the study of contemporary sources and the interpretations of different historians. The topics selected ensure that the students leave with a breadth of historical knowledge, from 100 years of German and Russian history analysing change and continuity, to the more in-depth assessment of the Wars of the Roses. Having developed their essay writing and source analysis, as well as an Independent Enquiry, students will leave the course enriched and armed with a wealth of transferable skills that equips for them thoroughly for Higher Education and life beyond.
