Geography A Level at Arnold Hill Academy

Course description

Why study this course?

The world we live in is constantly changing. Geography gives you the access to understanding our world. From this you will gain an understanding of why and how it is changing. Topics covered during the course include Physical Geography looking at water and carbon cycles, as well as Human Geography which will look at global systems and global governance as well as contemporary urban environments. Students will complete an individual geographical investigation which must include data collected in the field.

What support and enrichment will I get?

Students have the opportunity to attend a Field Trip during the A Level course where data is collected for geographical investigation. Support is given to students on essay style and preparation as well as targeted intervention for students during lunchtime and after school timetabled revision sessions.

Entry requirements

In addition to the standard entry requirements for the Sixth Form, it is recommended (but not essential) that students have studied GCSE Geography and, if they have done so, they should have attained a grade B or better. If GCSE Geography has not been studied a minimum grade 6 in GCSE English and Maths is required.
