Content

Geography is the study of the Earth and the link between physical and human landscapes, it explores the relationships between people, place and the environment, and how these vary between places; History is the study of the past and investigates the cultural, political, social and economic history of Britain, Europe and the Atlantic World.

Combining these subjects will allow you to fully explore how the world has changed, is changing and how it will change in the future.

Through Geography, you will look at issues such as land use, planning and development, globalisation, climate change, energy, and tourism, in order to examine human relationships with the environment. Through History, you will first follow a broad approach to the study of history from the medieval to the modern period, before examining in-depth particular topics of history, and specific places, periods and themes which utilise the research specialisms of your teaching team.
