Introduction

History at Hodge Hill is an exciting subject which takes your mind from Britain’s past, to the struggle of the Jamaican Maroons. From the history of medicine and how Hitler destroyed Germany’s democracy to the causes of World War Two and Elizabeth I’s reign. You will be stretched to consider many social issues and moral questions while getting to grips with the chronology of time and how important events fit in to it.
