Geography GCSE at little canada for secondary schools

Course introduction

When it’s all about results, motivation and preparation make all the difference.
And that’s where we can help.
Bring your GCSE group to one of the finest field studies locations in the UK.
Then let the location and our staff do the rest!

Collect high-quality data; let us run a controlled assessment for you; focus on exam preparation. Whatever your priority is, we will make it ours.

Your pupils will soon be producing case studies of classic local examples with subject matter including coastal locations, fluvial systems, rural or urban settlements and much more.

All our staff have honours degrees in a relevant subject.
They are allocated to GCSE / Scottish CfE groups in the ratio of 1:12.
They take responsibility not only for organising a course tailored to meet your exact requirements, but also for all aspects of the health and safety of your group during their fieldwork sessions.

It’s good to know you’re in safe hands.
