GCSE Geography

Students will study Geography within a balanced framework of physical and human themes and will investigate the link between themes studied. They will travel the world from the classroom, exploring case studies in the United Kingdom, newly emerging economies and lower income countries. Topics of study include climate change, poverty, deprivation, global shifts in economic power and the challenge of sustainable resource use. Students will be encouraged to understand their role in society by considering different viewpoints, values and attitudes

A level Geography

Geography is a dynamic subject, which is unique in bridging both the social and natural sciences. It therefore combines well with many subjects and is highly valued by universities as a facilitating subject. It draws together the techniques of research, communication, analytical skills, problem solving and teamwork, whilst aiming to develop students as ‘global
citizens’ focusing on the interaction between people and the planet.
