At GCSE we follow the AQA A specification, studying, amongst other topics, Development, Coastal Processes and Tectonic activity. A Level Geography is offered for a two year course only (no AS level is now offered) and follows the EDEXCEL syllabus. A broad range of skills are developed at both GCSE and A Level. Fieldwork is an integral part of Geography and in addition to local fieldwork and day trips there are residential trips to, for instance, North Wales, the Dorset coast and The Midlands. Some of these are compulsory elements of the GCSE and A Level courses.
