History

At LOGS we aim for all pupils to enjoy their study of History. Through the investigative and analytical nature of the subject, we hope that pupils will foster a love of History and enjoy the lifelong benefits of the cultural understanding that comes with its study. Historical events are what have shaped society into what it is today and the new GCSE and A Level courses have been designed to help you understand the value and significance of events in the past.
