GCSE History: Letting our past, lead to your future...
We understand how difficult and daunting it is to be making key decisions about your future in year 8. We're here to make this process as straight forward and informed as possible, so, make sure you ask your teachers for advice and guidance.
History at St. Clement's is in "Pot 2" which includes Geography and French. All students have to study at least one of these subjects from pot 2.
History is a subject that has many transferrable skills that can contribute to both the world of work and more relevantly, to your other GCSE subjects. In GCSE History you will:
Read / Write / Communicate
Argue / Debate
Analyse / Interpret / Evaluate
Present / Persuade / Group work
We will also encourage you to do activities that will take you out of your comfort zone, but will be excellent preparation for the next phase of your lives i.e College / 6th Form and then job interviews.
