Year 9 history Summary

In Y9, students once again build on the skills developed in Y7/Y8 and develop the most challenging skills required for the GCSE curriculum such as identifying the importance of events and people and understanding how useful different sources of evidence are to help us understand the past. Twentieth Century events also enable students to appreciate how the past has shaped the present.
