In History homework follows the whole school homework policy.  Homework is set each week.  Students receive National Curriculum Levels at Key Stage 3 and examination grades at GCSE and A level.  Assessment for Learning strategies are widely used and students will be given regular targets in order to improve their future performance.


We offer a varied curriculum encompassing National Curriculum specifications focusing on key elements in British and world history.
