‘Geography is not only up to date and relevant; it is also one of the most exciting, adventurous and valuable subjects to study today. So many of the world’s current problems boil down to geography and we need the geographers of the future to help us understand them.’
Michael Palin, President of the Royal Geographical Society.
Students should have achieved at least a Grade B in GCSE Geography
Contains both Human and Physical units, some that have been introduced at GCSE level and some that are new, such as rivers and urban areas. The work this year concentrates on issues at local and global scales and looks at the importance of sustainability.
Students try to find common ground between Physical and Human areas of Geography and explore global issues. Topics include globalisation, natural
hazards, development and ecosystems. There are also two days of fieldwork.
Geography is a multi-disciplined subject and is a useful bridge between the Arts and Sciences. In this way it combines well with economics, Biology and Mathematics, also with History, English and languages.
What could I go on to do at the end of my course?
A-level Geography will allow girls to follow a wide range of courses at university in Human, Physical and Environmental Geography. In addition, this A-level gives students a useful introduction to areas such as Economics and Environmental Science.
Geography will teach you a wide range of skills and so lends itself to a variety of career paths. Diplomacy, tourism, conservation, risk assessment, geology, civil engineering, surveying,
cartography, aid work and market research are examples of some of the many careers in which geographers find success.
