What is History?

If the past is what happened before, in an earlier time, History may be considered the investigation, study and explanation of the past. This study of people, origins of cultures and religions, past events, both triumphs and disasters, gives the context of our lives today. The name History comes from the Latin Historia, which also means stories. This is quite apt, since the earliest form of History was the telling and passing down through the generations of stories about the past. Historians use written documents and artefacts to reinforce their knowledge and understanding.

GCSE History Tuition

History at GCSE is a linear qualification, meaning students take their exams at the end of the course, usually the end of Year 11. Typically, they will sit two 2 hour papers or three 90 minute papers. These assess topics from British, European and World history over varying time periods, with 40% of the topics covering British History. These could be an in-depth study of a relatively short time period such as Norman or Elizabethan England. A medium time period such as Germany from 1890 to 1945 or America from 1920 to 1973. A longer thematic study of health or warfare or migration in the last 1000 years.

A-Level History Tuition

History at A-Level develops Critical Thinking and Essay Writing skills. It requires students to evaluate events and source material and present a reasoned logical argument based on these evaluations. History at A-Level will often have three main areas of study. A Breadth Study across a wider period of time such as The British Empire, Tsarist and Communist Russia or The Tudors. A depth Study across a shorter period of time such as The War of The Roses, The Birth of the USA or The French Revolution. A Historical Investigation on a topic of the student's choice, across a period of around 100 years. For the Depth and Breadth Studies one should be a British History option and the other a non-British History option. The Historical Investigation must be on a different topic area and overall the student must cover a range of at least 200 years in their studies. History A-Level can lead to degree studies in History or other subjects including Philosophy, Politics, Economics, Classics and Archaeology. These in turn may lead to careers in Education, Law, Banking and Publishing amongst others.

How are Rugby schools performing?

We connect you to the best teachers who work across several of the best primary and secondary schools in Rugby (some detailed below). This means we can reliably provide you with a local and experienced tutor that fits your needs.

Rugby primary school performance:

The Rugby area has 34 primary schools (one of the top being English Martyrs Catholic Primary School with 30% of pupils achieving at a higher standard).

From their latest Oftsed report:
“English Martyrs Primary is a good school. In the majority of classes pupils make good academic progress because effective teaching moves their learning on quickly. Consequently, the overall attainment of pupils is high by the time they leave the school. This has improved since the previous inspection. Pupils enjoy school and this is reflected in their high levels of attendance, with very few pupils being persistently absent. They behave exceptionally well in lessons and, while a very few find this harder in the playground, rare incidents are managed well.”

The Rugby local authority has an average of 66% of students meeting the expected standards in reading, writing, and maths at primary school age (vs England's average of 65%). And has an average of 11% achieving higher standard (vs England's average of 11%).

 

Rugby secondary school performance:

The Rugby area has 12 secondary schools (one of the top being Lawrence Sheriff School with 97% of pupils achieving grade 5 or above in English and Maths GCSEs).

From their latest Oftsed report:
“Lawrence Sheriff is an outstandingly successful school that provides students with an excellent standard of education. As a result, they develop academically and personally into well-rounded young men who are prepared extremely well for their future lives. The school’s strength lies in its culture of very high achievement, innovation and great sense of community. These three elements, together with the extremely positive relationships between staff and students and studentsthemselves, combine to produce a vibrant and dynamic environment in which students thrive. The vast majority of parents are very supportive of the school and consider that their sons are well cared for and make good progress.”

The Rugby local authority has an average of 50% of students achieving grade 5 or above in English and Maths GCSEs (vs England's average of 43%). And has an average of 96% of students either staying in education or entering employment after GCSEs (vs England's average of 94%).
