History is fascinating in its own right, ranging from the poignant to the gruesome and the everyday to the bizarre. By studying History, we can appreciate the story of our own country and its place within the wider history of the world. History is an impressive subject to have on a CV as it teaches the skills of explanation and analysis. The high level skills taught at GCSE History are transferable to any other subject or career and this is recognised by colleges, universities and employers.
