What our members say
School History resources have been essential for my tailoring of IGCSE teaching.
Their resources offer teachers a variety of methods to interest students, allow access to relevant information and to teach analytical skills.
With our move to online learning, I found that many more remote-friendly resources (PowerPoint, worksheets and more) were needed on a daily basis.

Over the last three years, I have taught both IGCSE and A level history, and School History has been my go-to site for material.
It has a wealth of information, excellently organised by examination syndicate, to help students understand and teachers prepare.
From PPT presentations to handouts and assessments, the material is invaluable to any history teacher.
