Our modern history route examines the issue of rights and freedoms in the modern world, with a focus upon 20th century American history, as well as India’s struggle for independence from British rule. During the second year, you will study political agitation and parliamentary reform in Britain, as well as a coursework module, which gives you an opportunity to produce an independent research project investigating why historians disagree in a subject area of your choice. Previously, students have had the opportunity to be involved in community projects, such as links and projects with Bridgwater’s Blake Museum.

A good grade in A Level history is highly valued by all universities. It is suitable for those intending to study a wide range of subjects at undergraduate level but may be of particular value to those intending to study history, archaeology, politics, law or English. Several alumni have successfully gained places to read History at Oxbridge or Russell Group universities. A handful of alumni now hold doctorates in the field.
