Students at St Edward’s spend their Year 9 Geography lessons following the GCSE syllabus, in preparation for moving into Upper School. This is a fantastic way to get a taste of the type of concepts that will be covered in depth should they opt to take the subject for GCSE.

This year’s cohort are currently working on a 9 mark exam question on the immediate and long term responses to earthquakes, with a focus on the Haiti and Nepal earthquakes.

9 mark exam questions are the highest value questions included in GCSE Geography, demonstrating the high level at which these students are operating. Well done Year 9!
