Please post your views

I would really like to find out what our students think of this blog. Does it help you with History and is there anything that I can do to improve it? Come on everyone, start posting your comments.

New revision resources

The exam board that we follow is AQA and we are currently studying the following topics at GCSE:

  • America, 1840–1895: Expansion and consolidation
  • Conflict and tension, 1894–1918
  • Britain: Health and the people, c1000 to the present day 
  • Norman England, c1066–c1100

To help you with your revision for all History modules, I have uploaded revision booklets as well as a number of powerpoints that we have used in our lessons. Please make good use of them. You will find them all in the relevant folders on the G.C.S.E page.
