Grade 4 in GCSE English, plus grade 4 in History if taken; newcomers to the subject are welcomed.
Ancient History is taken by students doing a wide range of other subjects, in both the Arts and Sciences. At this level, Ancient History can be a truly complementary subject, extending and balancing a programme of study drawn from any part of the College curriculum. Our students go on to a wide range of courses and careers. A considerable number will take a degree in the subject, or a related field, such as English, Law, Economics, Philosophy, Theology or Politics, where an A-Level in Ancient History is certainly an advantage. In addition to a wider angled view of many contemporary events and issues, those trained in Ancient History have developed skills of critical analysis and judgement; these are highly valued in many professions, including Law, Management, Finance, Journalism and Politics.
