Our intent in Geography is to instil a sense of curiosity about the world around us into each student. We endeavour to ensure that all students leave us either at the end of KS3 or KS4 as global citizens, with a good understanding of the prominent issues faced by the population and the planet. Thanks to our rural location, we hope to expose students to aspects of human geography they may not otherwise experience or consider, and help them to understand the events of the natural world. We hope that students are confident enough to question stereotypes and common misconceptions and move forward with an open mind.
We have developed a spiralling curriculum in which key skills are periodically revisited to allow for gradual development and understanding. Extended writing and methods of revision are taught explicitly to students.
Geography involves strong cross-curricular links to numeracy through geographical skills such as the drawing and interpreting of graphs, and literacy through extended writing and PEE essays.
