The Geography department seeks to guide and inspire all learners to achieve in geography through an engaging and challenging curriculum. A high-quality geography education should inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people.
Intent of the Geography Curriculum
Teaching should equip pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. As pupils progress, their growing knowledge about the world should help them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human environments. By incorporating geographical skills, current issues and varying scale from local to global we are able to enthuse the young people we teach and develop a wide range of valuable transferable skills. The curriculum is based on the National Curriculum for Key Stage 3 Geography in terms of both content and concepts
