Geography

Geography is an interesting subject and is increasingly relevant to the students. Many of the topics studied link into the areas covered in Business studies, and give the students the opportunity to analyse current world news and debates whilst building their awareness of the history that has led to contemporary socio-economic issues.

The GCSE assessment follows the OCR syllabus and includes two pieces of researched coursework worth 25% and two exams, one worth 25% and one worth 50%. Students also take part in a field trip to enable them to put into practice primary research methods.
