"Only people who have an acquaintance with the landmarks of change in past societies can plug themselves into debate and discussion about the modern world and its future."
The Edexcel History course will appeal to those with an enquiring mind, an interest in the past and its relevance to current affairs and the ability to communicate their ideas effectively.
Discussion and debate are key elements of the course and it also covers the way the world has developed through the ages. Students will learn to appreciate diversity and value inheritance and their analytical skills will be greatly improved.
