Geography at Sir William Robertson Academy

Course description

This A Level Geography course is interesting and challenging. Its combination of scientifi c methods, writing and investigation of the world around us makes it a perfect subject to study alongside many other subjects at A Level.

The AS Level course involves aspects of both human and physical Geography and includes topics such as Rivers, Glaciations, Energy and Human Populations.

A2 Level concentrates on current issues which lead to global confl icts. In addition to the diverse and interesting topics there will be fi eld trips to many different places, including a residential visit. Not only will these be academically rewarding, but also really good fun and an amazing experience! Seeing how geographical theories work in reality has inspired many A Level students to continue with Geography at university.

Excellent teaching, fi eld trips and the resources available at SWRA all ensure that every student can grasp the methods and theories involved in this exciting subject. The field trips include day visits to the Peak District and Nottingham, and a five day residential visit to North Somerset.
