Brookfield Community School

A Specialist Sport College


Brookfield Community School > Curriculum > History > Post-16 History
The History Department at Brookfield offers AQA syllabuses in History at both AS and A2 levels. Two AS units are taught in Y12 and two A2 units are undertaken in Y13. The AS course is a 'stand alone' qualification, students can choose whether to continue into A2 or they can cease studying History after AS. The majority of students choose to continue their studies into A2.
 
 
Students in both Y12 and Y13 are supplied with a number of textbooks. Copies of textbooks are also kept in the school library and the department maintains its own Short Loans Collection which contains a large collection of books. The course followed also includes the development of various transferable skills such as reading, note-taking, essay planning, time management and revision skills.
 
 
The department has very good relationships with various universities. Pictured below is Emeritus Professor Barry Coward who has visited Brookfield.

What our students say:
 
Richard Agar
I came to Brookfield School Sixth Form from the Meadows Community School. From doing GCSE History, I knew I wanted to study the subject at A level. Although being difficult sometimes, I enjoy the subject and would recommend it to anyone wanting to study it Post-16.
 
 
 
 
Sophie Hudson
As a Brookfield student, I have always done History at this school and, over the years, I have studied some fascinating periods and developed a passion for the subject. A level History has, however, set a host of new challenges. The topics are covered in much greater depth and every single aspect of a period is examined. This depth of study, in truly complex yet absorbing periods of History, allows you to build up an amazing knowledge and interest which I promise you will learn to love and enjoy.
