  • The earlier date is the best-case scenario – the date by which we aim to dispatch the resource to you, if the resource sails through quality and similar checks.
  • The later date is given to indicate the latest date by which you should expect the resource to be dispatched.

These dispatch dates may occasionally be moved back, in which case we will notify you. Conversely, publications are often delivered earlier than the dates shown.

The History Boys Study Guide

for A Level

Intelligent teacher’s notes, with discussion points for comprehensive coverage of the play and key issues:

  • Scene-by-scene commentary
  • Social Context
  • Themes
  • Characterisation
  • Theatrical techniques and more!

For perfect preparation... New 2008 style examination questions for AQA A Language & Literature Unit ELLA1 and OCR Literature Unit 2 F662

A highly intelligent guide to the play which would enhance the thinking of both teachers and students... the comprehensive treatment of the frequent allusions to other texts would be welcome to teachers who don't have time to trace every allusion. This is important as these allusions often make the humour of the play... I was most impressed by the depth and breadth with which the authors dealt with this complex play. On top of this, their tone made the relatively complex ideas of the play clear throughout - a definite plus.

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (3061)
"Clear textual commentary; very useful background material.I particularly like this resource because it is clearly organised. Well written challenging and not patronising." H Hook, English Teacher and Satisfied Customer
'I found it comprehensive, detailed, and think it provides a very useful ‘key’ to the play’s numerous intertextual references and the context Bennett draws upon... leading students to a much fuller understanding of the issues surrounding Bennett’s debates.'L Mellor, English Coordinator & Lecturer, Independent Reviewer
