The aim of our Geography curriculum is to:

  • encourage students to be global citizens who have an appreciation of sustainability and diversity.
  • become geographers who have a strong understanding of place on a variety of scales ranging from the local to international.
  • have a good understanding of both human and physical geography.

By the end of Key Stage 3 (Year 7-9) students should:

  • Know how geographical processes shape landscapes.
  • Know how population and settlement patterns change and vary depending on their location.
  • Be able to evaluate social, economic and environmental effects.
  • Be prepared to create reasoned conclusions.

By the end of Key Stage 4 (Year 10-11) students who take Geography as a specialism should:

  • Know about climate change, poverty, deprivation, global shifts in economic power and the challenge of sustainable resource use.
  • Know about exploring case studies in the United Kingdom (UK), higher income countries (HICs), newly emerging economies (NEEs) and lower income countries (LICs).
  • Be able to understand their role in society, by considering different viewpoints, values and attitudes.
