We only have one world and Geography is the exciting study of just what makes it so unique, both in terms of its natural dimensions and the human communities who inhabit it. You will develop a wide range of investigative skills and approaches; including problem solving, mathematics and statistics. You will also learn outside of the classroom and explore the world on our very own doorstep through fieldwork exercises in contrasting Cornish environments. Crucially, you will become familiar with new ideas and case-studies linked to the changing nature of geography in the 21st Century.
Topics will include the safeguarding of our planet through gaining an understanding of climate change, hazard management, globalisation, urban regeneration and sustainable living. This course will be assessed by 100% examination at the end of Year 11 and is a sound foundation for any further academic study. Geography is included in the English Baccalaureate measure.
