Geography - A Level at The Latymer School

Course description

The AQA syllabus is taught and we have approximately 110 students studying A-level Geography across Year 12 and Year 13 (2016). There are normally 3 - 4 classes in both cohorts. Students have fourteen 40 minute lessons each two-week cycle and are normally taught by two members of staff. A-level Geography is taught in class sizes of approximately 14 - 18.

The A-level Geography course units are:

  • Changing Places
  • Coastal Landscapes
  • Hazards
  • Water & Carbon Cycles
  • Population & the Environment
  • Global Systems & Governance

Students have one residential field trip to Swanage in Year 12 lasting 3 days and takes place during the spring term, as well as visit to Stratford to investigate the impact of the London 2012 Olympic Games on the changing character of the local area. In Year 13, students are afforded the opportunity to plan their own independent investigation based on either human or physical aspects of Geography (or a combination of both).
