Our AS and A-level Environmental Science specifications will help you to inspire students, nurture their passion for the subject and lay the foundations for further study and the workplace.

Environmental Science is a highly relevant interdisciplinary fourth science option. It’s ideal study for anyone interested in contemporary environmental issues, systems thinking and sustainability.

The content of the AS is identical and co-teachable to that of the first year of A-level, which gives you flexibility in planning, timetabling and resourcing.
