Modern World History - Schools History Project - Teachers Resources - Films


Site Search


This site is designed to provide easy to access information relating to the various GCSE courses avaiable for History students.

The site is in its infancy and will grow rapidly to provide a narrative to support each unit that might be delivered via a History GCSE. The starting point for the site has been the Modern World syllabi on offer from exam boards. Pupils following a course based on the Schools History Project will find links to our sister sites which already provide guidance for pupils and teachers doing these courses. Once a narrative for each of the MWH and SHP units has been completed work will begin on the OCR Pilot and Controlled Assessment units.

SchoolsHistory now provides CPD and Consultancy to schools. To find out how we can support your History department, please contact us via the form below. Details of our current CPD workshops and Consultancy services can be found on our training page.
