The Year 12 and 13 History students attended the AQA Tudor Day with Historian Tracy Borman and AQA Chief Examiner Keith Milne on Tuesday, 28 November. The students had the opportunity to listen to Prof Borman speak on Henry VII and the establishment of the Tudor dynasty. This was particularly special because she has agreed to support a new award at Channing: The Tracy Borman Women Making History Prize. This will be awarded to the student who, through their pursuit of History at A level and desire to study it at university, best exemplifies the qualities of a future contributor to historical scholarship and to advancing women’s presence in the field. This will be given at the Year 13 Leavers’ Assembly in May. The remainder of the day was spent with Keith Milne working on improving essay and source interpretation skills on the Tudors.
