We at Adeyfield believe in the importance of learning from history. History enables students to study different aspects of the past, to be able to engage with key issues such as conflict and understand what drives change and how the past influences the present. History at Adeyfield School prepares students to take the Edexcel History GCSE exam. Students will cover a Modern Depth Study of Weimar and Nazi Germany 1918-1945, a Thematic study of Health and the People 1250 to the present day with an Investigation into the British sector of the Western Front 1914-18, a period study on The American West 1835-1895 and a British Depth Study into Early Elizabethan England 1558-88.
Studying GCSE History will help you to answer important questions such as why do wars happen, why do we have a welfare system and how have we come to live in a multicultural society? You will learn valuable skills that are transferable including excellent communication and writing skills, how to thoroughly research and investigate issues as well as developing your analytical and interpretation skills .
