Yes, it is all essay based, and technique is important for the exams. There is also quite a lot of knowledge around the topics that you need to remember as well! History is on the list of the most respected A-Level and you do one piece of coursework in your A2 year.
What you learn depends on your school entirely. It varies between the different exam boards, and the school gets to choose which topic in the exam board they teach. In my AS year, I did Gladstone/Disraeli and the Cold War, and then in my A2 year, I did Margaret Thatcher (the coursework) and American Civil Rights. It worth asking the teachers at your school, though, or it might be on their website.
