Geography A-Level at Reading School

Course description

Why should you study Geography? Geography is a hugely popular A Level choice nationally, as well as in Reading School. Teaching is characterised by a lively approach aimed at exploiting the geographer’s natural curiosity and concern about the major contemporary issues.

It is Geography’s ability to integrate the study of the Earth’s places, peoples, environments and societies that makes it so relevant to the understanding of the increasingly interconnected world in which we all live and work.
