Geography at UTC South Durham is based on a balanced framework of human and physical Geography as set out by the AQA Geography course. This course which encourages students to investigate the links between these two themes, and approach and examine the current battles between the man-made and natural worlds. The course is a good basis for understanding the modern world in which we currently live.

As part of the GCSE course students will undertake two fieldtrips examining areas of both the natural and man-made world, whilst evaluating the impact one has upon the other.

Exams are taken at the end of year 11 with three exam papers where students will be able to answer questions on the content covered through the course and completed  fieldwork undertaken before the exam.
