Geograhpy is a subject that will grant you access to a wide range of possible career and higher education opportunities. Possible career paths can include:
The qualification can also lead to further training in such areas as accountancy, law, and journalism.
Geography is a subject for broadening the mind. It offers you the opportunity to study world changing themes and ideas. It gives you the chance to discuss your points of view whilst also listening to, and taking on board, a diverse range of other people’s opinions too. It has the perfect balance of the sciences and humanities.
Geography is considered one of the ‘facilitating subjects’ by the Russell Group of universities (Oxford, Cambridge, Manchester, LSE and others). Many of these top universities require you to have at least one of these subjects at A Level in order to study there. A good GCSE and A Level in Geography is therefore a subject that can really open up possibilities and allows you to keep your future options fully open!
In the next 50 years our world will change more than it has ever changed before. A Level Geography at Trinity can help you to understand these changes and prepare yourselves for them. You are the people who will be making the decisions that will affect our planet in the future—make sure you are informed!!
Geography is for life: lifelong, life-sustaining and life-enhancing.
Here at Trinity we follow the OCR AS and A Level in Geography. This offers a broad and balanced qualification that builds on GCSE level whilst also introducing students to newer concepts that may be covered in Geography at Higher Education level.
In Y12 students will cover:
There will be two exams at the end of the year leading to your AS Level.
In Y13 students will cover:
An Independent Investigation will also be carried out and will form a piece of coursework. This will equate to 20% of the final A Level grade.
It is hoped that an overseas residential fieldtrip will also be offered to study some of these concepts and processes in the real world.
