Welcome Back!

Welcome back to all our GCSE Geographers – our new Year 10 Geographers will be following the brand new AQA GCSE course and therefore should be using the dedicated Schoology online course – a new blog will be set up to go alongside this during the course of the year.

For our new Year 11 students – hopefully you will find this blog useful with lots of resources to support the Edexcel A GCSE course – remember also you have access to your dedicate online schoology course with lots of other resources to help you with your revision.

If you need any help or advice please do not hesitate to speak to your Geography Teacher. We wish you all the very best for a successful year ahead!

Welcome Back


Many congratulations to our Year 11 students who achieved 82% A*-C in their Geography GCSE exams this year – you hard work paid off. We wish you all the very best in whatever you are going on to do next! We look forward to seeing many of you on the A’level Geography course as well! – The Geography Team

Good luck

The Geography team would like to wish all the Year 11 Geography the very best of luck with their Unit 3 exam tomorrow! You have all worked very hard and we wish you every success!

Unit 1 – Challenges to the Planet

The unit 1 exam is rapidly approaching. Tonight’s revision session we mapped out and revised the Challenges to the Planet section of the exam (see below). If you were unable to make the session the resources are available on the Year 11 Schoology page (ask your teacher for the access code if you have not signed up).

Make sure you learn your examples and place specific detail to back up your answers!


GCSE Revision Programme

If you haven’t been able to make the 10 Week Revision programme, remember you can access the Revision materials through the St Ivo Year 11 Schoology account (see your teacher for access codes). These are added after each session – they are definitely not the same as being there but may be helpful. 3 more sessions to go……

Tomorrow night we are revising Challenges to the Planet – this is part of the Unit 1 exam which is coming up VERY soon – please try and be there if you can. 3.15 – N16 (Higher), N17 (Foundation) and N19 (Higher).
