GCSE Geography gives you a real, in-depth understanding of the world we live in. You will develop
critical thinking, analysis and problem-solving skills through issue-based geographical enquiries. The WJEC Eduqas GCSE (9-1) Geography B specification provides coverage of physical, environmental and human aspects of the subject and the linkages that exist between them.
Applied fieldwork trips — Y10 GCSE pupils visit Sheffield and the Peak District to enhance their learning and develop their fieldwork and analytical skills.
