Course Outline

At GCSE we follow the OCR Modern World B specification, our depth study is on The Cold War 1945 -1975 (Causes of the Cold War, Cuba, Vietnam) and Germany 1918 -1945 (Weimar Germany, the Rise of Nazism, Life in Hitler’s Germany).  Paper 2 is focused on Changing Life in Britain after WW2 (Life in WW2, NHS, Immigration, Changing Role of Women, The Growth of the Teenager).  

Controlled assessment is completed in Year 11 and consists of a 2000 word evidence based essay on an issue from the unit USA 1945 -1975; Land of Freedom?  

Students get to develop their own interpretations and judgements surrounding a key issue set by the exam board.
