Geography

GEOGRAPHY VISION

Develop Geographers with a thirst for gaining knowledge of the World in which they live and an understanding of the impacts they can have on their World.

The aim of our KS3 curriculum is to allow students to gain the knowledge and the skills to become good all-round Geographers with a keen interest in the world around them and the part they play within it.

It is aimed to give students the foundations of knowledge and understanding in all the key areas of Geography – including those delivered at GCSE.

The Year 10 curriculum focuses on the UK topics at GCSE. Again this will build upon the foundations of knowledge gained in Year 7 and also the geographical skills and map skills gained in KS3.

The Year 11 curriculum is designed to complete the remaining topics of the GCSE. There will be a heavy focus on the 2 sets of PPEs and their final exam – both in terms of preparation and feedback.
