Geography

A Level Geography covers both the physical and human environments, and the complex interaction of processes that
shape our world. Studying Geography will allow you to understand processes and landscapes that others take for granted. The broad nature of the course means you will always find something that interests you, and the skills you learn are widely applicable as you move onto further study. 

Where can this course lead?
