Coombes Sixth Form


Geography at Coombe is an exciting and successful subject area.

We currently teach the AQA syllabus, focussing on human and physical aspects of geography as well as geographical skills.

The Year 12 groups spend 4 days in Slapton Field Studies Centre (F.S.C), Devon studying core elements of the course, practising data handing, statistical tests and data representation. We see at first hand a wide range of rural environments, follow the River Harbourne from source to mouth and investigate coastal environments at different locations. Students cover a large element of the syllabus in the welcoming atmosphere of the FSC.

We have healthy numbers for this popular subject and mixed groups of students from a variety of local schools.


Year 12 student

"I study Geography, Biology, Chemistry and Maths with statistics. The choice of subjects suits me well as I prefer the physical and scientific side of Geography. I am hoping to study Physical Geography at University with the aim of becoming a meteorologist. The fieldwork element to the course was brilliant and we spent a very enjoyable week studying the geomorphology of the Devon coastline. Next year there are plans for a trip to Iceland."
