Course Content

This specification for the discipline of Geography encourages students to gain enjoyment, satisfaction and a sense of achievement as they develop their knowledge and understanding of the subject. This A Level course will enable students to be inspired by their geographical understanding, to engage critically with real world issues and places, and to apply their geographical knowledge, theory and skills to the world around them. Students will grow as independent think-ers and as informed and engaged citizens, who understand the role and importance of Geography as one of the key disciplines relevant to understanding the world’s changing peoples, places and environments.

To support the Independent Investigation, students will take part in 4 days of both physical and human fieldwork, a combination of residential and day trips. This will allow for data collection and to gain an understanding of selected study areas.
