KS4 History

In year 9 students have the opportunity to pick History at GCSE. History is a highly-regarded subject by both employers and universities and it has a large take-up at St George’s. The department have achieved strong results at GCSE with 67% of the year group achieving A*-C in 2014. Many students achieve A and A* grades. This success comes from hard work from both the students and staff. There are after-school, Saturday and holiday revision sessions which are compulsory for students to attend. 


Students take all exams at the end of year 11. They have one attempt at this exam and there are two papers that they complete. The first is Unit 1 which we study three units from in year 10. The second exam is on Unit 2 which is on three depth studies.

Students also complete two pieces of source-based controlled assessments in school.


Homework is set in every Key Stage 4 History lesson. It is expected to be completed for the following lessons. It is designed to extend and consolidate learning.
