The study of History allows understanding of a rapidly changing world. Conflict and its resolution figures prominently in IB History studies. A sense of proportion and perspective will be provided and greater knowledge of different times and cultures will emerge.

The History IB course is a truly global course which extends the knowledge gained at GCSE level by looking at events from new global perspectives – including those of Japan and China. History will provide the vital underpinning for challenging careers in the 21st century and students frequently go on to study International Relations and other related disciplines at university.

History is the gateway to many professional careers: law, journalism and the media, politics and the Civil Service. Academic careers, such as teaching in schools or universities and research fellowships, are also possibilities. The industry offers innumerable openings: historical sites, tours and retail.

Students are given the opportunity to attend external lectures and field trips and lead participation in our fortnightly History Film Club.
