“This is a great age for Geography. Very big questions – climate, poverty, disease, migration, water, energy, biodiversity – all demand geographical analysis, as do specific national issues in the UK, like housing, social deprivation, flooding and regional development. As the population grows, and with pressures on the Earth’s systems increasing, geography has never been so important.” (Nicholas Crane; RGS-IBG President). Take the challenge to learn new geographical skills at the Philip Morant School & College; to become a outstanding geographer and better understand the world around you. Mr P Norman, Subject Leader, Geography.
Students follow the AQA specification. This exciting course is based on a balanced framework of physical and human geography. It allows students to investigate the link between the two themes, and approach and examine the battles between the man-made and natural worlds. Students will sit three exams at the end of Year 11 on the following topics: Living with the physical environment, Challenges in the human environment and Geographical applications.
Key Stage 3
