Geography

‘…Geography students hold the key to the world’s problems’, (Michael Palin)

At the University of Birmingham School, we aim to develop a sense of discovery for our pupils, creating an awareness of our local community and how the area is interlinked with the world at regional, national and international levels.

Course Description.

An understanding of the historical influences aims to explain the evolution of current environments and helps our students to appreciate how their actions will not only have an impact on the school community but also the future of their local, national and international communities.

At A Level, students will be studying the Edexcel specification which enable our students to engage critically with real-world issues and places, apply their own geographical knowledge, understanding and skills to make sense of the world around them. The specification offers an issues-based approach to studying geography, enabling students to explore and evaluate contemporary geographical questions and issues for example, putting in place successful responses that can mitigate impacts and allow humans to adapt to hazard occurrence.

At all stages, students will have the opportunity to conduct fieldwork to reinforce and enlighten learning in the classroom. Outside speakers also enrich our lessons. We are extremely fortunate to have the opportunity to work with the University of Birmingham’s School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences Department. It has a renowned history for international excellence in research and teaching.
