What Students Say:
“History lessons are both challenging and captivating. The tutors are always pushing us to produce the highest levels of evaluative, analytical work. The syllabus is interesting – such as the Russian Revolution and Nazi Germany – and constantly thought-provoking as you begin to discover different ways of interpreting history. Although the exams themselves are difficult, the tutors provide a helpful level of support to ensure you keep calm and carry on.”– Emily Duthie. Eleanor wants to go on to study Environmental Earth Science at university when she leaves College.
“I enjoyed History at high school and when I came to the College Information Morning I saw that the teachers were really passionate about the subject and the topics studied would interest me. You get the chance to become involved in class – it’s much more than a teacher talking to you about a subject; you could ask a question that starts a debate in class. The collaborative nature of the course serves to advance both spoken and written learning. Teachers are always there to help, facilities are always available for private study and if you want to borrow a book or sit in a lesson you are always welcome.” – Oliver Jackson.
