Key Stage Three, GCSE, AS-Level, A2  

     

Geography gives pupils the chance to learn about the world around them, they gain skills in fieldwork and work as part of a team.  It allows pupils to study current world geographical events.


 

The department aims to:


  • develop pupils’ geographical knowledge, understanding and skills

  • develop their role as individuals & contributors to society

  • develop their role as contributors to the environment



In Key Stage 3, pupils engage in a wide variety of topics. Pupils begin with ‘What is Geography?’ and focus on place and map work followed by a range of topics including environmental issues, river systems, weather & climate, settlement, tourism as well as population.


At GCSE, our students undertake AQA’s specification and study units on Fieldwork, Physical and Human Geography.


At A-level, geographers undertake the course offered by CCEA, and study units in Physical Geography, Human Geography as well as developing their understanding of Fieldwork, Skills and Techniques and Decision Making.


Pupils at GCSE and AS level have the opportunity to go on residential fieldtrips to collect fieldwork data. Trips centre around the collection of river data, tourism, studies of an urban area and sand dunes.
