At KS5 we offer a GCE in ‘A’ Level Geography; students study the AQA ‘A’ Level specification.
This has clear links to the GCSE specification in terms of assessment objectives and knowledge. The topics selected (e.g. Hazards and coasts) build upon knowledge students have gained at KS3 and developed at KS4. The AQA specification includes human and physical units and a Non-Examined Assessment (NEA) where students complete an individual geographical investigation which requires them to devise a question, collect data in the field and analyse their work. This is a culmination of all the skills and fieldwork elements learnt throughout they key stages.
