Geography at St Julie's Catholic High School

Course description

The Geography courses provide students with an exciting insight to the world in which we live from both a human and physical perspective.

The AS course allows students to gain a deeper understanding of key areas of Geographical study. Topics
covered include traditional aspects of Geography including 'Cold Environments' and 'Rivers, Floods and Management'. The course also looks at areas of Geography that are constantly evolving; 'Population Change' and
'Health Issues'.

Students have been offered opportunities for foreign field trips, most recently to the French Alps to study glaciation with Liverpool Hope University, and to Iceland where students were able to visit the Blue Lagoon, tried to witness the
Northern Lights and visited many other amazing sights in this volcanic country. For our current Geography students we are investigating the possibility of taking them to the West Coast of the USA in February half term 2015 for a tour of San Francisco, Death Valley, the Grand Canyon and LA amongst other places. There may well be places for new Year 12 students wanting to join in too!
