Geography A level at Woldgate School and Sixth Form College

Course description

An incredibly flexible and wide-ranging subject, Geography is ideally suited to students who are interested in the many factors which affect our planet and how we live. It allows us to appreciate how and why both smaller and larger changes occur, and how we need to adapt as a result. Straddling the science and humanities disciplines, the subject allows you to develop an understanding of key scientific, environmental and economic principles and issues. The course builds on knowledge gained at GCSE, but do not be put off if you haven’t done GCSE Geography. Fieldwork is a vital part of the course, and we spend a day studying rivers in the North York Moors during the Autumn term. There are a number of additional one-day visits covering fieldwork based in Leeds and the Yorkshire Coast. We also intend to visit Iceland in 2017 with sixth form students.
