GCSE

Geography is a popular choice at GCSE. Small group sizes with individual attention ensure that all students are able to reach their potential in this subject. This is reflected in our examination results, with a pass rate of more than 90% (A*-C) in each of the last three years.

 

Students study the AQA GCSE syllabus A.  The course is broken down into Human and Physical Geography, comprising the following elements:

  • Population change
  • Changing urban environments
  • Tourism
  • The restless earth
  • Water on the land
  • Coastal zone

Students sit two exams worth a total of 75% of the final marks and carry out a Controlled Assessment worth 25% of the final marks.  For both exams there is a choice of two levels:

  • Foundation tier, where grades C-G may be awarded
  • Higher tier Geography Fieldwork at Bartley Water where grades A*-D may be awarded

Fieldwork is obviously essential to GCSE studies, and this academic year we will be undertaking our Controlled Assessment Task on how the River Hamble's width and depth changes from source to mouth.
