A-Level

Much of what has been written in the section on GCSE would apply also to A-level, although here scholarly debates and up-to-date reading are clearly even more important. One problem is the cost of recommended recently published works, so institutional access to scholarly articles would be an alternative, including book reviews which are free to users. The Oxford Dictionary of National Biography would be another useful, free resource. The National Archives, the British Library, the British Museum, and the Royal Museums Greenwich all have rich sets of sources of evidence and related resources on a wide range of topics, including A-level ones, often well-contextualised by experts. Some talks in the branch programme will be aimed at A-level students but may well attract wider interest from other students and the general public.
