History A Level offers new ways to see, think about, and understand the world. How did our world come to be the way it is? How is the country run, and how should it be run? Can we actually know anything about the world!? How can we test the claims and arguments made by other people?
At Queen Mary’s Sixth Form College we offer a captivating array of history courses that transport students through the corridors of time. In addition to Medieval and Tudor History and Modern History A levels on offer, we take pride in being the only institution in the area offering Ancient History as an A Level option.
History A Level equips you with transferable skills that will prove invaluable in any career path or university degree. Whether you aspire to pursue history at university level, engage in related disciplines, or apply your skills in the professional world, each of our History A Level courses empower you to write persuasively, think critically, and analyse text and data with precision.
The History, Philosophy and Politics Department
Whether studying an ancient Roman document, or the very latest developments in Politics, our students become highly skilled in analysing information and making connections. In presenting a case for a particular understanding of a historical period, or a particular ethical position in Philosophy, our students learn to argue intelligently, in essays and in discussion. We help students to ask excellent questions, from Philosophical enquiries into what exists, to which sources to trust most in History.
