A Level History

Getting a head start in HISTORY

History teachers at Furness College will provide a variety of materials for aspiring Historians to work on between now and what we hope will be the start of a new academic year in September 2020.

Students who have already expressed an interest in History A Level, and any others who are just interested in History, are welcome to take part in the activities, quizzes and competitions which will be posted throughout the coming months.

To take part, students need to visit our website – histpology.co.uk (the site has a secure SSL certificate) – and look for the ‘MOVING ON UP’ pages in the History section.

The ‘MOVING ON UP’ pages directs students to

  • Specific and challenging things to read
  • Specific (and often funny) things to watch
  • Links to a wide-range of excellent History podcasts
  • Ideas for thinking, arguing and writing about History

Our first competition (submissions by email) challenges students to think of the best items they would put in a ‘Covid-19’ time-capsule alongside the obvious face mask and hand sanitiser. In September, new History students will decide what articles to include and the capsule will be hidden somewhere in the grounds of Furness College.

Staff are happy to be contacted by email:

All welcome!
