 AS and A-Level

 

GCE A level
 
In 2008 our department took the decision to change examination boards.  Having researched all the available options  we decided  to go with our local  CCEA examination board and our option choice focusses on
16th Century England and Spain.
 
Students who choose history at A level do so because they really enjoy the subject. At this level, the work is more intense and there is more in-depth analysis, presentation work and more essay writing, however it is an interesting and enjoyable experience for both teacher and students.
 
Our examination results in 2010 reflected the high standards of achievement;
 
A*-A = 50%, A*-B = 90%, A*-C = 100%.
 
 
In year 13 we study two modules for AS
 
AS (1) England 1520-1570, AS (2) Spain and Europe 1556-1592.
 
 
 In year 14 we study two modules for A2
 
A2 (1) Anglo-Spanish Relations 1509-1609 and A2 (2) England 1570-1603.
