Edexcel GCSE History (2016)
Here, you'll find everything you need to prepare for the changes to GCSE History from 2016, including our accredited Edexcel GCSE (9–1) History specification and sample assessment materials.
Supporting great history teaching
Our new Edexcel specification brings together elements of the current Modern World and Schools History Project courses, so GCSE students can explore a broader range of history than ever before.
With help from hundreds of teaching professionals and the history education community, we've created a qualification we know teachers want to teach and students want to study.
With our unique approach to the Historic Environment requirement, the sites we've chosen will stay the same throughout the lifetime of the course. That way, you can focus on teaching the history rather than planning and finding resources for a different site every year.
Our assessments encourage all students to show what they know and understand about history to the best of their ability.
Our support takes many forms, all with the aim of helping you plan, teach, track and assess our new Edexcel GCSE (9–1) History with confidence. From free events and materials to paid-for published resources, much of this support is already available for you to get started with now.
