Geography AQA AS Level (Linear) at Poynton High School
AS Geography is an exciting course where students study physical and human geography and complete a geographical fieldwork investigation. In physical geography students gain an understanding of the cycles that drive our planet, looking at the water and carbon cycles. There is also the study of hazards looking at the relationship between earthquakes and volcanoes and humans. In human geography students will study a changing dynamic world looking at how places change. There is also a fieldwork element where students will undertake at least two days of fieldwork which will be examined in an examination.
