Geography at The Grange School
Students with AS or A level Geography have access
to a wide range of possible career and higher
education opportunities. You learn and use a variety
of transferable skills throughout the course. These
include collecting, analysing and interpreting data,
communicating your findings in a variety of ways,
and identifying and developing the links between
different parts of the subject. These skills are in
great demand and are recognised by employers
and universities as being of great value.
At AS, all candidates will study core human and physical geography. In each area
of study candidates will consider the values and attitudes of decision makers,
consider their own values and attitudes to the issues being studied and support
their learning of ideas through the study of specific case studies. Candidates
will also develop a variety of geographical skills, which will broaden and deepen
existing knowledge and be employed with a greater degree of independence.
At A2, candidates will continue to study a combination of human and physical
geography. Candidates are required to choose whether to undertake preparatory
investigative work in the field in order to be able to produce a fieldwork
investigation, or undertake an issue evaluation exercise to extend the content
within the specialised context of issue evaluation.
Our standard academic entry requirements
into the Sixth Form at The Grange School are:
¬ Students should secure Grade A or A* in the

¬ Where the subject is not offered at GCSE

¬ These results should be accompanied with
four other GCSEs at Grade B or above which
should include English and Mathematics if
they are not one of the chosen AS subjects;
¬ Any remaining GCSE examination results
should be at Grade C or above.
