The A Level Geography course builds on the GCSE Geography course, and although there is not a direct requirement to have studied Geography previously, it will help you to have a solid grasp of the knowledge and understanding from GCSE level.
During your Geography A Level, you will examine the interaction of people and their environments. At Crompton House, our course is equally split into Human and Physical Geography and then something about the NEA.
At the end of the A Level course, you’ll have a better understanding of how mankind and the Earth work together. Between them, they’re what make our planet tick!

The Geography course gives a wide range of skills and knowledge:

  •  Undertaking research & analysis
  • Teamwork on practical projects
  • Investigating global issues
  • An ability to interpret natural phenomena

Students who choose Geography find it goes well with any combination of Arts or Science subjects. This means Geography can either be your specialist subject, or play a supporting role for others. The course can be seen as an end in itself or as an excellent foundation to a degree course.

Advanced Level Geography can take you anywhere on Earth!


It will help you develop a range of skills which are equally useful whether you intend to:

  • enter the world of work
  • start some form of job training
  • continue your studies at university or college
