Battle Abbey School is one of the best places to study History simply because of the setting. Being the site of the most significant battle in English History and the location of a reformed abbey we relish in the atmosphere which adds real value to the experience of History at the school. We have a very successful and popular History Department which is supported by two enthusiastic Historians.
Battle Abbey students thoroughly enjoy the History offer throughout the school and this is shown by a very strong following into study at GCSE and A Level.
The department supports academic excellence and examination results are well above the national average with many students achieving the top grades. Recent History students have furthered their study of History related courses in a number of good Universities in the UK including Oxford, Exeter, York, UCL, Reading, Kent and Sussex.
