Students will be taking the Edexcel GCSE which wil be examined by 3 exams in the summer.  The topics we are going to cover are:

Crime and Punishment in Britain, c1000-present and Whitechapel, c1870-1900:  crime, policing and the inner city

Early Elizabethan England, 1558-1588

Superpower relations and the Cold War, 1941-1991

Weimar and Nazi Germany, 1918-1939

This is an exciting course, but one which requires lots of reading and writing so students need to be prepared to do this.  Some prior study in Year 10 would be very beneficial.
