Geography A level at Eckington School

Course description

The Geography department is an effective curriculum area.

At A level, it is a popular subject for post 16 students. We have consistently performed at or above the school average as measured by external examination results.

Course content

The course provides a natural progression from GCSE and allows for specialisation and progression to higher education and employment.

There is a further development of the skills from GCSE level (communication skills, graphical and cartographical skills, ICT skills, interpersonal skills, literacy, numeracy, problem solving and entrepreneurial skills) with greater opportunity to develop fieldwork skills and study geographical issues and impacts, particularly through our day site visits and our residential fieldwork visit.

The core geographical concepts we study are rivers, floods and management and population change. Our optional topics are coastal environments, energy issues, plate tectonics and associated hazards, weather and climate and associated hazards and world cities.
