History Department

History is a thriving part of the Humanities Department and the subject continues to be a  popular option at both IGCSE and at AS/A2. The aims of the History Department are to give students a well-rounded understanding of the world by incorporating aspects of international and Middle Eastern history. Students will learn about major events in world history and how western and Islamic history have been impacted by these key events. 

Many of our students are very successful at A Level, and go on to attend prestigious universities across the world. History is a facilitating subject for many courses; such as law, political science, journalism and history; at leading Russell Group and Ivy League universities, and so the subject has enjoyed increasing popularity at QIS.

All members of the department are well qualified History graduates and postgraduates, who are committed in their desire to ensure students of History achieve their desired outcomes. The subject is studied through academic literature, engaging lectures, online tools and class trips.
