Geography

Year 7, 8 & 9 Geography

In Years 7, 8 & 9 Geography is taught as a discrete subject with both Human and Physical topics being studied. Human Geography topics include population and development whist natural hazards, coasts and glaciation are studied from a Physical Geography perspective. There is further emphasis on geographical and enquiry skills which are required should pupils continue their study of Geography at GCSE level.

Key Stage 4 Geography

Geography is a popular option at G.C.S.E. with pupils following the AQA Specification. The main focus of the Specification is to provide candidates with a clear overall view of the world in the first part of the 21st century and raise awareness of their responsibilities as global citizens. The course creates opportunities for both personalised and independent learning. Pupils will study case studies in the United Kingdom (UK), higher income countries (HICs), newly emerging economies (NEEs) and lower income countries (LICs). Topics of study include climate change, poverty, deprivation, global shifts in economic power and the challenge of sustainable resource use. Students are also encouraged to understand their role in society, by considering different viewpoints, values and attitudes. There is an opportunity to use ICT and develop a range of transferrable skills such as, literacy, numeracy, problem solving, debate and discussion.

Pupils will be assessed though three separate examinations. Two examinations will last one and a half hours, (Living with the physical environment and Challenges in the human environment), whilst the third examination (Geographical applications) will last one hour and fifteen minutes. The examinations will take place at the end of the course.
