History at The Royal

The students in Years 7 to 9 generally follow the National Curriculum. This means Year 7 mostly study English History from 1066 to 1500; Year 8 English and European History from 1500 to 1750 and Year 9 English and World History from 1750 to the 20th Century.  During the course of their studies, the following trips are undertaken by these year groups to help bring the curriculum to life.

  • Year 7 to Warwick Castle
  • Year 8 to Harvington Hall
  • Year 9 a three day trip to historic London including visits to the Tower of London, St. Paul’s, the Cabinet War Room with the Churchill Museum and The Imperial War Museum

Years 10 and 11 follow a 20th Century GCSE course which takes in international relations between 1900 and 1945, the First World War, the Russian Revolution and Communism to 1941, as well as German History from 1919 to 1939.
