Geography (up to GCSE)

St Georges093Geography is a popular, academic subject that enables pupils to have access to a variety of opportunities in the future.  At GCSE level pupils need an enthusiasm for the world around them. They also need to be able to read and write to a high standard as well as the ability to interpret maps and graphs.  Over the two years, pupils will develop skills in research and to be able to analyse and explain the interaction between people and the environment that surrounds them.  We follow the AQA exam syllabus.
