Geography

About the Curriculum

Geography is a popular option in the Fourth and Fifth Forms, found in three of the four option blocks.

Alongside the Geography curriculum, in the Third Form we also introduce the skills necessary for GCSE. We currently follow the AQA A GCSE specification. This course has an equal balance of physical topics (Water on the Land, Restless Earth and The Living Planet) and human topics (Managing Urban Change, Managing Rural Change and Tourism).


Enrichment

The College's location in the South Downs National Park and close to the coast, makes local fieldwork easy. We also visit Worthing and other urban areas in the vicinity. In the Fifth Form there is an annual visit to Morocco, and in the Sixth Form we visit Iceland and Swanage (World Heritage Coastline). We also ran a regular trip to Nepal.
