Geography at University Academy Holbeach
Geography A Level explores the key principles, concepts and processes that explain geographical phenomena and landscapes. It maintains the balance between physical and human geography while ensuring relevance to the modern world.
- This A Level reduces repetition of topics covered at GCSE and Key Stage 4 and provides continuity and progression in geographical understanding.
- It provides an excellent foundation for those learners wishing to go on to study geography at degree level. Topics are explored in-depth using individual research and investigation techniques.
- It ensures that topics have relevance to the modern world and to young people’s lives.
- It maintains the requirement to carry out fieldwork but removes the need for lengthy formal reports.
Topics include: Managing Physical Environments
Students will need at least a B in GCSE Geography. However, taking Geography at GCSE is not necessary to undertake an AS level course as most of the topics will be new. A willingness to read more widely beyond the work set in class is essential. Students who have not studied GCSE Geography will require at least a grade B in GCSE English language.
