On Wednesday 10 October the History Department ran a new enrichment event for the first time. The History speed dating event involved over twenty talented young historians from Year 11 working with a small group of Year 13 A-Level History students. The aim of the event was to give advice to Year 11 students on how to gain access to the top grades and to give them a better insight into what studying History at Post 16 involves.
The event was a great success, with a real buzz in the room. Both year groups found the experience worthwhile.
Comments from students who attended included:-
“I found this event very helpful and look forward to doing History for A-Level.”
“I really enjoyed seeing how the Year 11s engaged and made conversation to get to know the A-Level course.”
“It was fun and I learnt a lot about A-Level History. The advice and tips were very helpful.”
