We follow the CIE A Level course which has ten modules. The course is a mixture of old and new themes.
The more traditional topics include:
- Hazards, Population, Settlements, Coasts, Globalisation, Rocks and Landscape, Hydrology, Migration, Economic Geography and Atmosphere.
- Assessment is through both short answer questions and longer essays. There is no coursework element in this subject. Two teachers will provide support throughout the course.
- Fieldwork forms an essential part of the course because it provides both in depth case study material about specifically selected sites: a major ingredient in achieving a top grade and practical experience using investigation techniques. Trips are arranged during the course including a visit overseas. We have recently visited Northamptonshire, Bedford, London, and a sixth form visit to Iceland.
