The Edexcel International GCSE in History forms part of the GCSE Qualification. The aims and objectives of IGCSE are to help students develop their knowledge and understanding of events, periods of history, and key leadership in order to assess its impact on modern society. By studying through this model, students will be able to engage in historical enquiry, exercise critical thinking, and develop the ability to ask pertinent and relevant questions about the past and its impact on the world. Students will also be able to formulate well-substantiated arguments and effectively communicate their historical knowledge, understanding and conclusions.
The Edexcel International GCSE curriculum is a project School History is embarking on in order to give our teachers access to the highest quality teaching resources. While this project is ongoing, we’ve compiled a list of resources related to modules for first teaching from 2019.
Edexcel IGCSE consists of two mandatory papers.

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.
