A Levels: Geography and Environmental Pathway

Course Code: ALP7 Duration: 2 Years Attendance: Full Time Location: Farnborough Campus Start Date: 09/09/2024    


About the course

Study Geography and Biology alongside your choice of a third subject.

A Levels are a great choice for those who thrive in a classroom setting and want to study more than one subject.

Classes at Farnborough are close-knit and often smaller than those at larger sixth forms, so you can look forward to plenty of opportunities for feedback and support.

Our team of friendly, qualified lecturers will provide resources and guidance to help you feel prepared for your next steps after college, whether that’s university, an apprenticeship, or employment.

By looking at popular combinations of A Levels, we have grouped our subjects together to offer you a distinct set of choices that form a pathway to particular university courses and careers. Your pathway consists of three A Level subjects, with an additional subject available for each pathway.

Your course

This A Level pathway includes two core subjects and your choice of a third subject:​


If you are fascinated by the world around you, geography explores the range of factors that influence our surrounding environment and way of life. At Farnborough, previous course activities have included analysing soil samples from Malta in our science lab and taking a trip to the British coast to study flood defences and regeneration.


Have you ever wondered what the human body is made of, how we fight off diseases, and what role plants play in our lives? The study of biology provides a fascinating insight into all of these areas and more. At Farnborough, you will learn hands-on in our science lab, bringing biology to life through exciting experiments, research projects and dissections.

Plus your choice of either:

Choice 1: Chemistry

Studying chemistry at Farnborough involves learning hands-on in our science lab, conducting experiments with a variety of chemicals and elements to observe their effects. You will discover chemistry’s role in society and how it can provide innovative solutions to challenges in the modern environment.

Choice 2: Law

Law determines what is right and wrong in our society. Within the study of law, you will explore the English Legal System, discovering how criminals are dealt with and the ways that laws influence our parliamentary system. You will have opportunities to discuss and debate current legislation and the advantages or disadvantages these can bring.

Choice 3: History

Historical events have shaped society worldwide into what it is today. Within the study of history, you will explore how events that happened many years ago continue to influence school curriculums, laws and policies, and cultural celebrations. You will discover that knowing how people lived in the past helps us to understand why people act as they do today

Choice 4: Sociology

Sociology seeks to understand how groups of people interact with each other within society and why this differs between societies. This fascinating subject explores the influences that culture, class, power, crime, inequality, gender, ethnicity and more, all have on societal behaviour. The study of sociology can lead to a wide range of progression options.
