Sixth Form Geography
Head of Department - Mr C Ruck
Geography is a dynamic and challenging subject that will enable you to ask and answer the difficult questions about the world in which you live. The variety of topics covered at A-Level will enhance your understanding and appreciation of the complex, dynamic world in which we live, ensuring you have a broad understanding of issues as diverse as global climate change and the obesity crisis. This is all conducted using a wide variety of skills which will broaden your existing knowledge and enable you to work with a greater degree of independence. All of this will help you to analyse and evaluate ideas and concepts at a level which will prepare you for the challenges of university and the world of work beyond this.
Geography is a highly sought after subject and its broad range of skills naturally compliments other subjects. Consequently it is recognised by the Russell Group of universities as one of the top eight facilitating subjects.
We will be following Edexcel A-Level syllabus with a focus on tectonic hazards, glaciation, climate change, globalisation, superpowers, diverse places and migration, identity and sovereignty. An independent investigation is required which the students will undertake in the summer term of Lower Sixth. This involves four days of fieldwork training and data collection in the Brecon Beacons staying at the school’s new field studies centre, the Boetius Centre. To complement the glaciation module and provide further opportunity for a fieldwork investigation we run an optional four day trip to the Swiss Alps in the summer holidays which allows students to see geography in action.
