Geography

 

About the Curriculum

In the Sixth Form, Geography is in two of the option blocks and provides a subject that can combine with a wide range of other A Levels in both sciences and art subjects. For A Level we currently follow the OCR A Geography specification. There is a skills paper based on fieldwork and a global issues paper that involves topics such as Natural Hazards and Globalisation.


Enrichment

The College's location in the South Downs National Park and close to the coast makes local fieldwork easy, and 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 run a regular trip to Nepal.
