History in Hertfordshire

History is a well established and popular subject in Hertfordshire schools in all age groups. There has been a tradition of curriculum development within the subject with pilot schemes for GCSE and A Level courses run in county in the past.

Hertfordshire offers much to support and encourage history. There are superb sites for field work, ranging from pre-Roman settlement times to the New Towns of the twentieth century. Hertfordshire's museums have a deservedly high reputation for the work done in support of schools. Hertfordshire Archives and Local Studies provides both a vast fund of available local history materials and opportunities for teachers and students to visit and work on site. The county is well situated for visits to a number of sites and museums in the south of England and beyond and schools frequently make great use of the enormous range of opportunities open to them.
