History is taught at all levels at Winchester. Combined with other subjects in Div during the first three years, the study of History is compulsory. The curriculum ranges broadly. A pupil can expect to have studied aspects of the past from Ancient Egypt to the present day. Every boy will acquire both historical knowledge and skills which should prove very useful at later stages in his career. As a literary subject, History assists in delivering the core requirements of the English curriculum. History is also offered as a GCSE option.

In VI Book, History is an optional subject, taken by pupils who have chosen to do Pre-U. At this level, boys specialise in mediaeval, early modern and modern History and are taught by experts in these fields.
