Key Stage 4 Subjects


GCSE Geography allows students to explore human and physical issues, ranging from river and coastal management through to the most effective ways to tackle poverty. Students will recognise the complexities of geography, through the interactions between human and physical environments, cultural diversity and environmental sustainability.

GCSE Geography equips students with the skills needed for further studies and the world of work. A successful geographer will be able to problem solve, understand a range of mathematical and graphical sources of information, write extended reports and substantiate their opinions. This is why geography is one of the most desirable subjects for a range of employers.

There are six key themes to GCSE Geography:

  • Development Dynamics
  • UK Physical Landscape
  • UK Human Landscape
  • Hazardous Earth
  • People and Environment Issues
  • Urbanising World

Students will complete three examinations: Global Geographical Issues, UK Geographical Issues and Making Geographical Decisions.
