Alex Richardson Host: Alex is a History teacher at Warlingham School, with an MRes in History from Goldsmiths University. His specialist areas are the German Revolution of 1918, the Cold War, and the history of the early Soviet Union.

Norman England is a large topic covered in AQA History alongside other exam boards. Through a series of classes, students will learn how the Normans changed so many aspects of life in England.

This class will summarise the role of the church in Norman times – a vitally important institution. Students will assess its importance in terms of the Norman economy, education systems, politics and government, and the law and will also consider the role of the priest.  

This is a great class for anyone currently covering the topic but also for students who have an interest in the subject or want to get ahead with a firm background understanding allowing them to excel in exams and teacher assessments.
