Geography GCSE Resources
This page provides links to a wide range of geography resources, case studies, tests and revision notes for Edexcel Geography GCSE Syllabus A and other UK GCSE and A level geography examinations.
These geography resources cover settlements and urban land use, urban management, population and resources, coasts and coastal management, rivers and river management, weather and climate, glaciation, sustainable development, agriculture and economic activity, high-tech industry, managing ecosystems, tourism and tourism management, and geographical skills.
The resources include comprehensive revision notes, glossaries, unique case studies, coursework advice and assistance, and geography tests. Tests include multiple choice, map reading role play simulations and automated essay marking. All tests come complete with security-checked certificate awards.

As school owner, Don Alejandro, you permitted me in 2012 to use this blog - paid for at my own expense - for an educational resource in Elians British School, La Nucia, since teachers had no way of putting resources on your school website. School websites in the UK are curriculum resources; your Elians website is simply a place to put pretty pictures of your school to attract paying customers.
When I was sacked on 1 March 2018 your IT Department changed all my passwords but maybe you forgot my students and their parents look at this blog for Geography work. The stats show the blog has seen ten times more visitors since Mr Lakin gave me your letter terminating my contract.
I came here to teach in the Costa Blanca following seven years in the well-known Archbishop's School in Canterbury, under the leadership of inspirational headmaster Alasdair Hogarth. In 2005 our team achieved an Ofsted inspection report which was OUTSTANDING in every category. So when I came to work here I was proud to have played my part in a truly professional team. I have always been a team player in school, as colleagues in Elians know.
In contrast, Mr Tim Lakin arrived here in Elians as your Executive Director after being IES UK Manager, where his IES Breckland School was in 2014 rated INADEQUATE by Ofsted in every category - including school leadership - and immediately put into SPECIAL MEASURES.
If pupils cannot be taught English successfully in a UK school led by Mr Lakin, it does pose questions about the chances of improving English for second language learners here, don't you think?
Mr Lakin treats the staff with contempt and styles himself "Uncle Tim" which many staff find patronising, infantilising, or just plain creepy.
Thanks, Don Alejandro, for inflicting such "leadership" on your hard-working underpaid staff.
