Geography A Level at Bourne Grammar School

Course description

There has never been a better or more important time to study Geography. In a rapidly changing world, Geographers seek to engage with and make sense of the relationship between human populations and their physical environment. At a time when issues such as migration, climate change, environmental degradation, the spread of disease, economic change and population increase are at the forefront of government debate, it is Geographers who are needed to help address the challenges facing the next generation.

Geography is flourishing at A Level precisely because young people realise that they can have an impact on the world they will inherit. Consequently, Geographers develop skills which are highly regarded by employers - numeracy, literacy, teamwork, analytical and critical thinking, but more importantly, cultural agility, social and environmental awareness, and wider world experience as a result of fieldwork (the department has recently taken A Level students to both Iceland and North Yorkshire). Rivers, cold environments and food supply issues are studied at AS Level. A Level Geography adopts an issues approach consistent with modern conceptions of the subject, its validity and utility.
