A-Level Geography


Geography is the subject which holds the key to our future  

-Michael Palin

There has never been a better or more important time to study A level Geography. Dealing with vital issues such as climate change, migration, environmental degradation, social issues and natural hazards, A level Geography is one of the most relevant subjects you could choose to study. Students enjoy the scope of the material they cover in geography, the insights it can provide into the world around us and the highly contemporary nature of the issues it tackles. The A level Geography course is often split into human and physical geography even though geography is a very fluid subject with some of the issues overlapping. (cife.org.uk)

This qualification is linear which means that students will sit all their exams and submit all their non-exam assessments at the end of the course.
