The world is changing. From global climate change to local planning issues, a knowledge of how different parts of the environment are related is fundamental to understanding life in the world today.

Students begin to appreciate the relevance of Geography through the use of practical field work, the introduction of GIS (Geographical Information Systems) and project based activity, as well as more traditional classroom-based learning with a strong emphasis on ICT.

Overview of the Year for Geography at Key Stage 3

In Years 7 and 8 we aim to equip the students with the knowledge and skills that they will need to study GCSE Geography at KS4. At the same time we hope to make the learning of Geography an enjoyable experience that will encourage students to enquire about the world in which we live.

Topics include:

  • Where in the world
  • Ecosystems
  • Map skills
  • Resources and development
  • Climate change
  • Extreme environments
  • Tectonic hazards

If you would like further information about the topics and themes being taught please contact: Mrs J Cadman.

Overview of the Year for Geography at Key Stage 4

In the Geography department we follow the current AQA GCSE: Geography A (Year 11) and the AQA GCSE Geography 2018 (Year 9 and 10).

Through our planning, teaching, assessment and marking, teachers of Geography aim to develop students’ ability to recall geographical knowledge, understand the implication of wealth and development for countries throughout the world and be able to recognise geographical features and processes. They will use a range of skills, make reasoned and balanced judgements, reflect on their own learning and begin to understand their role as a global citizen.
