Course description


Course content

Year 12 are currently following the Edexcel AS syllabus and will continue with this into the A2 course in Year 13.  Students will develop an understanding of geographical concepts and processes, recognise the challenges of sustainability and the implications for their own and others’ lives, and develop geography skills through classroom teaching and fieldwork.  We will run a day trip to an outdoor centre to complete fieldwork as part of the course.

This  enables students s to develop knowledge and understanding of selected physical, human and environmental processes that underpin key geographical concepts; develop a knowledge and understanding of the key concepts of place, space, diversity, interdependence and change over time; study at a range of scales, from the local to the global and to use a range of skills and techniques, including the use of maps and images necessary for study.  They will go on a fieldtrip to develop an understanding of the application and relevance of geography.
