Geography is a fascinating and contemporary subject. The exciting new Geography A-Level course allows you to engage critically with real world issues and places. The subject gives you an understanding of the world’s changing peoples, places and environments. You will study relevant topics and global issues which include tectonic hazards, globalisation, superpowers and
water conflicts.

The A-Level will give you an understanding of other people and cultures, and develop your own
views about social, political and environmental issues. Geography is one of the facilitating subjects. This means studying Geography at A level will help to keep your options open when it comes to choosing a degree or career. Many of the UK’s top universities will ask that you have studied at least one A level in a facilitating subject when you apply.


Your A-Level learning will be complimented by field trips. In Year 12 you will complete a two day
residential along the east coast, along with two days urban fieldwork in Leeds. There is also an amazing opportunity to visit Mount Etna as part of a 5-day residential on the island of Sicily.
