An exciting subject that brings the world into the classroom. Students learn a variety of physical and human topics which will help them to learn and address global issues. Students will adopt a variety of skills including presentation work, data interpretation, fieldwork and drawing diagrams. Geography inspires pupils to become global citizens by exploring their own place in the world, their values and their responsibilities to other people, to the environment and to the sustainability of the planet.


Developing further into the subject students explore six key topics and complete a fieldwork based investigation following the AQA GCSE
Geography syllabus. The course topics is evenly split between human and physical Geography. Living with the physical environment covers a range of natural processes, from natural hazards to unique landscapes and a close look at ecosystems around the world. Challenges in the human environment looks at urban issues, the change of the economic world and challenges of resource management.
A local fieldtrip is also undertaken and data collected in the field is then used to analyse and interpret geographical information and then
applied to the knowledge and understanding covered in the content of the course. The final element of the course requires students to
study a pre-release booklet in preparation for evaluating a geographical issue.
