Our planned studies for current Year 13 include:

We will ask questions and expolre ideas such as:

Also we study a Geographical issue Education module.  Students use a variety of skills to analyse and interpret information so that evaluations and conclusions can be made.

Fieldwork

Our trip to the Isle of Arran, Scotland, provides our students with the opportunity to investigate real geography in an awe inspiring, glaciated environment. We are privileged to attend this centre as it is renowned for its world class status amongst geographers world wide.

We are also likely to do fieldwork in more local areas.
