Geography

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.
